My wife was talking to some neighbors who were trying to find out what the story is with the Prince William County Code regarding overcrowding, due to some problems with some new neighbors. The house in question is about 2400 square feet, has four bedrooms, and 2 1/2 baths. Guess how many persons are permitted to occupy such a dwelling according to code, according to the county?
Fourteen, plus two boarders.
Now how in the heck are we supposed to protect our quality of life when the county code is so permissive? Maybe it’s time to have some of our county supervisors revisit this ordinance and see if we can tighten things up a bit.
If we’re lucky, maybe Mexicanos Sin Fronteras will show up to protest. That would be a hoot.
