Fair Zoning Initiative

Current city law limits discriminates against singles and renters -- both married and single renters. There are double standards depending on whether you're related or unrelated.

Proposed law:

" Zoning ordinances may not discriminate based on marital status, or age of adult residents, or familial status, or real property ownership status, or educational status, or whether the adult residents are related or unrelated by blood or marriage or adoption, or whether the residents are permanent, semi-transient, or transient.

Grandfathered zoning or property rights shall not expire upon transfer of property ownership.

In every home zoned for an accessory apartment, that apartment shall not be restricted to a particular location within the building. "

The people of Provo deserve a chance to vote on this!

Who knows better -- 7 city council members or 5 judges or over 70,000 voters in Provo?! The people must decide -- it is our duty to do so. We trust the people of Provo to make a wise decision.

The government is supposed to safeguard our rights, not make us beg to have the permission to use all of them.
