When the vision, goals and policies change, the procedures and processes for implementing the vision needs to change.

With the rise of suburban single-family neighborhoods after World War II, enacting regulations restricting the number of unrelated individuals allowed to occupy a dwelling became commonplace in municipal codes throughout the United States. Doing so is intended to create neighborhoods of a certain character conducive to the traditional ideals associated with the American Dream of quiet family living.
The code has been changed five times since it began in 1962 based on a couple of Supreme Court rulings.
