Ms. Claudia Phelps, I would kindly point out that "apartment dwellers" (read: renters) have had suffrage and full citizenship in the USA, right alongside "homeowners," 2-3 generations before women had suffrage. Why do so many persist in denigrating one's right to participate in democracy based on an 18th-century conceit that only property owners deserve to be heard? (FWIW, I am also "30ish" and own property.)

Also, those who insist upon no change -- in the face of a city that will radically change, whether or not it updates its laws -- are proposing some pretty radical changes of their own: more traffic congestion, even more breathtakingly dear housing prices, ever more suburban sprawl and the attendant pollution. Those are radical changes that I oppose, not a few minor tweaks to the zoning code.
