Size Matters?

Really, the government is now the expert on how big an apartment should be? This seems absurd and certainly in conflict with free enterprise theory. If apodments were not in demand then no one would build them. It isn’t like the City doesn’t oversee the construction quality related to life safety issues through the permit and construction inspection process.


I may not want to personally live in a 200 square foot apartment but I certainly don’t want to tell others that they cannot, especially if it allows that renter to live closer to their work site and keep yet another car off the already full streets. I am confused by a City government that on one hands opposes traffic growth while on the other hand is encouraging density, which now seems to be on a campaign against one idea that helps address both issues at once.

If there is tenant demand for the product and it is safely constructed then why is the City even talking about it?
