Bill looks to supersede residential zoning rules across the state

A bipartisan group of legislators want to relax local zoning rules that block apartments from being built in many Minnesota cities.

The bill would supersede local zoning rules and require cities of 5,000 or more to legalize at least six types of homes from a menu that includes duplexes, cottage clusters, townhouses and small apartment buildings. Smaller cities would have to allow duplexes.

"Now is the time to legalize more housing choices," said Rep. Mike Howard, DFL-Richfield.
