Detroit allows unrelated pairs to cohabitate
By JUDY RAKOWSKY
Unwed cohabitants in Detroit can
stop hiding from their neighbors and
dodging the police since City Council
approved an ordinance yesterday per-
mitting unrelated persons to live
together in residential neighborhoods.
The legislation not only restricts the
allowance to two persons, but those
persons cannot be served by separate
kitchen facilities. The separate kitchen
rule was added in response to citizen
concern that such dwelling situations
encourage neighborhoods full of
rooming houses. Prior to this action, it
was illegal for two unrelated persons of
the same or opposite sex to share a
No such regulations exist in Ann Ar-
bor because discrimination dn the basis
of marital status is outlawed by the
Human Rights ordinance. In Warren,
Michigan, up to five unrelated persons
are permitted to live together, and
some other Detroit suburbs permit up
to three unrelated individuals to
THE LAW against this situation was
only enforced when complaints alerted
the authorities, according to Coun-
cilman Clyde Cleveland
The new ordinance emerged as a
result of complaints by a group of
Palmer Park residents who were con-
cerned about a house on their block in
which 18-unrelated persons were living
together. The issue was ultimately
brought before Council by home owner
Rene Amaya who was taken to court by
the Palmer Park group for living with

for 18. We couldn't have selective en-
forcement," regarding the past ap-
plication of the cohabitation law.
Councilman David Eberhard said
Tuesday, "Lifestyles have changed,
family life is different . .. and I think
the law should reflect this," according
to United Press International.
Opponents of the law - no Council
members spoke against it - expressed
concern that encouraging unrelated
persons to live together would result in
many living situations that resemble
rooming houses. Their concern prom-
pted the conditions for the law such as
the separate kitchen rule.
Cleveland said, "I don't think it (the
new law) will turn neighborhoods into
rooming houses." He added that the
impact of the legislation upon neigh-
borhoods will be closely watched.

is: will the lines on the road still look like dots?
