Nashville Sued Over Affordable Housing Ordinance

Conservative think tank Beacon Center of Tennessee filed a lawsuit against the city of Nashville for its recent affordable housing ordinance, calling it an unconstitutional mandate, the Nashville Post reports. The law requires apartment developers building five or more units and requesting variances for greater densities or heights to also include a percentage of new affordable housing units in the project. The suit seeks injunctive relief from the ordinance and a judge’s declaration that it is unconstitutional.
