Democrat Bill Would Override Local Zoning Officials to Allow Multi-Family Housing in All Neighborhoods

Virginia House Del. Ibraheem Samirah introduced HB152 that would override local zoning officials to permit multi-family housing in every neighborhood, changing the character of quiet suburbs. The bill would require all localities to allow development or redevelopment of “middle housing” residential units upon each lot zoned for single-family residential use. Middle housing is defined as two-family residential units, including duplexes, townhouses, cottages, and any similar structure.  Read the bill here:
