OMG--Branson Southwest Mo Town Outlaws Roommates--OMG

Critics say the move will hurt folks in tough economic times

A town in downstate-southwest Missouri town of Branson,
is taking the bold measure of outlawing roommates
in single-family homes in residential neighborhoods,

much to the chagrin of twenty-somethings in the vicinity
among other potentially aggrieved parties.

Local press reports on Branson City Council's decision,
by a vote of three to two,
to no longer allow unmarried and unrelated folks to live together in single-family homes.

The impetus for the move came after one Christian,single area resident complained that her neighbor was living in sin,
with his fiance and two roomies,

and didn't want the arrangement to become commonplace in Branson.

Upon gathering enough signatures to give her preference a hearing,

the town's powers-that-be collectively came down on her side, claiming to want to preserve the character of the Branson Christian Country Music community.

But one dissenting council member, Chris Bohinc, expressed her problem with the new law:

"All we're doing is hurting the fine people who live in this Country Music Theatre community," she said,

citing tough economics times and the harm to returning soldiers - many of whom need roommates -
and same-sex couples the law would bring in, sooner or later.

So surprised they are getting away with this. I think big challenges will come. In today's economic disaster, many people resort to roommates in attempt to be able to afford a nice place to live.
