Young single professionals in Provo express concern over proposed zoning law

Mary Ebert moved to southeast Provo to live closer to her job and to be with other young single professionals closer to her age. Ebert wanted to live in an area with mixed demographics, but she didnít realize many of the families in southeast Provo are not very welcoming to the influx of singles in the area.

Provo City Council members Dave Harding, Gary Winterton and Dave Sewell held a town hall meeting on Oct. 24 to address concerns of young single professionals in Provo about the proposed zoning enforcement law that would make punishments harsher for singles living in family-zoned areas.

The proposed zoning ordinance would make it easier for the city to enforce zoning laws by making the punishment a misdemeanor instead of a fine. This is meant to discourage landlords from renting homes in family-zoned areas to multiple singles to get more money from the rent.

The city council addressed concerns about the professionals feeling discriminated against, and discussed future solutions for housing for young single professionals in the Provo area.

1. What foolishness. The young singles need to get out of that city, maybe even the state.
