Salisbury 1936 Legislation Part 1
Look I'm going to be fair here and discuss the issues and not the personalities of the parties involved so save the comments for discussion of issues only. If passed all multifamily units must register with the City and be inspected and made to be compliant with City zoning standards. This will allow The City to determine which ones are legal and illegal conversations, the problem is even if they are legal if this bill is passed Jim is giving them 10 years to get out before it becomes illegal.
Look I know in Jim's eyes he is looking out for the home owners in those areas but this certainly screams of attacking the less fortunate among us. Take an example of a family that has just moved into a legal multifamily conversion and be looking at the news and drama going on knowing if this bill passes a clock will start on you instantly and you will be uprooted it's only a matter of time. I agree that most renters don't stay in the same place for 10 years but even if 1 family may it is a terrible thing to do to them.
I also am not a big fan of the Government stepping in and telling people what they can and can't do with their own property.
