It’s tough to top the Chicago City Council’s draconian ordinances that attempts to over-regulate everything from food trucks to music venues. It appears, however, that Evanston, IL, home to Northwestern University and the city directly north of Chicago, is giving them a run for their money:
The Northwestern administration will not ask Evanston to reconsider its “brothel law,” a zoning ordinance that will cause hundreds of students to be evicted next year from off-campus housing, a University official told THE DAILY on Monday.
The law, which prevents more than three unrelated people from living together, has not been enforced for years. But on July 1, Evanston will begin enforcing it, which will force landlords to evict some of the hundreds — or thousands — of NU students who live in off-campus houses or apartments with more than two roommates, city officials confirmed to THE DAILY on Monday.
