Not being a fan of legalese, I'll rely on youz guys to break it down, but as a general rule, they should let people live in their homes as they like, since they do it anyway. Group houses can be very crowded, and what's the difference between a family of 12 and a family living in the basement? The idea that renters will bring down the value of an area by itself is crazy. If you've got jobs, buzz, and beauty, no amount of renters is going to bring down a neighborhood. These fears are a hold over from the 1950's when an urban neighborhood's vitality seemed much more tenuous. We know that most people have moved beyond all the stereotypes that kept many a potential city dweller at bay. This is one of those areas in the zoning code that should be one page long. Life safety and 'nuff said.
