Council Delays Vote On Zoning Changes

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- – Possible changes to Lexington zoning laws around the University of Kentucky campus are on hold. The Urban County Council decided Tuesday to postpone voting on seven amendments designed to alleviate population density problems in many historic neighborhoods.

Proponents of the changes say landlords have been making large additions to once single-family dwellings, turning the houses into more of a dormitory or frat house.

Council members will review current zoning laws that define what is considered a family and a boarding house, and then compare those with the proposed amendments. The issue is up for discussion again at next Tuesday's council meeting.
