Skip to comments.Democrats Seek To Outlaw Suburban, Single-Family House Zoning, Calling It Racist And Bad For Environment

Democrats in Virginia may override local zoning to bring high-density housing, including public housing, to every neighborhood statewide — whether residents want it or not.
The measure could quickly transform the suburban lifestyle enjoyed by millions, permitting duplexes to be built on suburban lots in neighborhoods previously consisting of quiet streets and open green spaces. Proponents of “upzoning” say the changes are necessary because suburbs are bastions of segregation and elitism, as well as bad for the environment.
The move, which aims to provide “affordable housing,” might be fiercely opposed by local officials throughout the state, who have deliberately created and preserved neighborhoods with particular character — some dense and walkable, others semi-rural and private — to accommodate people’s various preferences.
But Democrats tout a state-level law’s ability to replace “not in my backyard” with “yes, in your backyard.”
House Delegate Ibraheem Samirah, a Democrat, introduced six housing measures Dec. 19, coinciding with Democrats’ takeover of the state legislature in November.
“Single-family housing zones would become two-zoned,” Samirah told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Areas that would be impacted most would be the suburbs that have not done their part in helping out.”
“The real issues are the areas in between very dense areas which are single-family zoned. Those are the areas that the state is having significant trouble dealing with. They’re living in a bubble,” he said.

THAT'S the agreement President Trump should get us out of next.
Hey Virginia: you voted for Demscum. Welcome to becoming the American version of Venezuela. No pity here for anyone who voted Demscum. The rest: get out now if you can.
As soon as Virginia put in the George Soros voting machines everything flips to the Democrats. Even thought this never happened before?
Keep in mind they put in the machines all because of 1 voting precinct in Florida in the 2000 Presidential election.
As the machines are installed all of sudden all swing and even now conservative areas are all going to the Democrats. This is so obvious it is rigged and the Republicans do nothing about it.
U didn’t know that?
This is an EXCELLENT EXAMPLE for people who live by conservative values, but don’t want to ‘get involved’...or, even worse, vote Democrat thinking their lives won’t be changed for the worse - that all their rhetoric is simply words, not intentions.
They figure that the American Leftists will ‘leave them alone’...and perhaps they’re right, if they lived in Japan...but not here, no f-ing way.
I’ve seen what happened to the neighborhood in Brooklyn where I and my family lived until we escaped.
Yeh, we have that in our suburb. Its called apts. Our property taxes paying for educating the spawn of low lifes that inhabit them. Mostly illegals.
Maybe the value of my house will go up before we move
This is from the globalist UN’s Agenda 21, published some time ago.
Well, of course, uber lib Austin is in on this.
Austin news channel was serenading us with the Austin Gay Mens Choir this morning. Begged hubby to change the channel. He thought it was funny I wasn’t pleased.
Private property is so yesterday
All 4 won their races.
How about outlawing private jets, heated pools and such. And it would likely please Ibrahim, toilets, water treatment plants and other health benefits. Where does he want to take us? Doesn’t he know Fred Flintstone was only a cartoon.
For more commentary on this:
That only matters in the short term.
Longer term, all the Bernie-bots produced in public schools will vote Stasi party. So...folks here still sending their children to public schools?
Now the cancer seeks to tell us how to live.....rural life ftw and will always be ftw! Urban life is utter cancer as is the libtard progressives!!
