They are not an option because even some low-income people want a home.
Stupid regulations like minimum lot sizes really just close out those
people from being able to afford one. Just like minimum wage laws
prevent some percentage of the low-income population from finding viable
work. What's ironic is that minimum wage laws hurt the very people they
are targetted at helping!
> I'm all for limited government, but only within reason.
Such a definite standard as ``what's reasonable!'' Masster is very
nicccce, oh yesss, very niccce.
> Wise zone can do a lot to ensure the long term health of a community.
> Poor zoning can destroy it.
And again, who is going to determine this ``wise zoning?'' Some kind of
omniscient group of people that know better than other groups of people
what is better for them and society?
