Lexington council delays vote on population density rules

Lexington's Urban County Council voted Tuesday to postpone a vote on seven changes to the city's zoning code designed to reduce population density in neighborhoods around the University of Kentucky.

Council members wanted to see a copy of the current zoning laws that give a definition of family, a boarding house and fraternity and sorority houses. Tenth District Councilman Doug Martin said he wanted to see the old and new versions in order to understand the changes that are being proposed.

Council will discuss and vote on the amendments at next Tuesday's work session. Proposed changes then go to the city's Planning Commission.
