There are many city restrictions on housing

This is in response to Duluth City Councilor Jay Fosle's comment that "it's communistic" to tell people what they can or cannot do with their homes ("300-foot rental rule survives," Oct. 28).

This is in response to Duluth City Councilor Jay Fosle's comment that "it's communistic" to tell people what they can or cannot do with their homes ("300-foot rental rule survives," Oct. 28).

The continuance of the so-called 300-foot rule may not be the solution to neighborhood problems related to student housing, but it is, in effect, no different than a zoning law used to protect a neighborhood from being used for anything other than family dwellings.

Just because I own my house, I do not have the right to open a bakery or a tavern in it. The rules are written to govern and to protect.
