Baltimore City Councilman Ryan Dorsey is proposing new legislation to improve the city’s housing situation. The Abundant Housing Act, which Dorsey introduced to the council on Monday, would allow for low-density multi-unit housing in all residential areas of up to four units, depending on how much square footage is available. An additional unit could be added if the area is near a grocery store or mass transit. Speaking with Tom Coale on WBAL NewsRadio on Wednesday, Dorsey said the current zoning law is based on intentional segregation, allowing for some neighborhoods to create multi-unit dwellings while others cannot.
