Student Housing

In 2020, City Council approved the revision to Article 1327 of the Zoning Ordinance relating to the Student Housing Zoning District. The purpose of such changes would allow for continued economic stability, promote the development of additional on-campus housing, and to direct concentration of housing of college students to locations in close proximity to a college and/or public transit while reducing the parking shortages and congestion.
