PHOENIX — State senators voted Wednesday to ensure that if you like to hang your clothes out on the line, you have a choice of new homes to buy.
Ditto parking your car on the street all night – or even painting your house chartreuse.
The legislation prohibits cities and counties from requiring home builders to establish “planned communities” as a condition of getting the requisite permits and zoning for a new development. Instead, that would be an option decided solely by the developer.
Nothing would preclude a requirement to ensure that residents in a subdivision contribute to maintaining common areas, walls or even privately owned streets.
