Repeal and/or ban all single family zoning and unit density limits

Because single family zoning and unit density limits are the single biggest cause of homelessness, plus they pollute the environment by increasing commuting distances, damage housing affordability, infringe on private property rights and cause the very overpopulation they were created to prevent by encouraging large houses with room for too many children; all single family zoning and unit density limits should be repealed and/or banned immediately.   Also occupancy limits that apply to unrelated adults but not equally to large families should be repealed and/or banned as well.

      I'm signing because increased density will increase urban tax base, reduce consumption of fossil fuels, and preserve farm land and wild land. However, I disagree with the petition author's contention that "density limits are the single biggest cause of homelessness," or that they necessarily damage affordability as low density suburban development is often very cheap for the consumer and highrise developers tend to create luxury condos. However, with zoning barriers lifted, the costs of urban core development shrink and there may be a chance to provide more affordable options. So anyway, here is my qualified signature.

      It's not realistic to continue single-family home limits, or to limit density in times where the price of fuel is going up and more individuals are struggling to stay housed, because of unemployment and underemployment. Let's address these problems by increasing density limits for unrelated households, and by eliminating single-family only zoning.
