In May, the Webster Groves City Council approved a text amendment to property currently zoned A4. It amended use and dimensional regulations for two family housing. It removed a restriction that a block currently have at least 40% two- or multi-family housing on the same side of the street before new two-family homes could be constructed. It allows property owners more options and opportunities to use their property in a way that works for the way they live.
A group of citizens who prefer that the previous restrictions remain in place gathered enough signatures to place this on the August 3rd ballot to try and reject the ordinance.
