Houston Also Has Land Use Regulations

Posting mostly as a reminder that Houston not having zoning laws does not mean that Houston does not have regulations about things like minimum parking requirements.

As Houston considers the first overhaul of its parking ordinance since 1989, those voicing the most concerns are restaurant and bar owners.

Owners say proposed requirements for more spaces at new bars and restaurants would be a hardship for small-business entrepreneurs who lack funds to buy or rent more land.
