Neighborhoods that have been zoned Residential Single Family are UNDER ATTACK by the new UDO! Most neighborhoods will instead be zoned R2 (depending on lot sizes) in the new UDO which means corner houses could be converted/replaced by duplexes "by right", meaning no public process. This is to increase "affordable housing" in Bloomington.
How does this affect homeowners and neighborhoods?
"My husband and I moved into our home in our neighborhood to raise our family. We wanted to live in a neighborhood filled with homeowners who would be invested in their homes and community and therefore create a safer environment for not only our children but for people of all ages. We wanted to know our neighbors and not have to worry about being surrrounded by homes that may or not be maintained my landlords and or renters who may or may not be committed to the neighborhood. We did not sign up to live in an area where houses could be destroyed to be converted into rentals. These neighborhoods represent the dream of home ownership. We need to protect that dream!
