1.Has the constitutionality of FAR or any other bulk tool been contested?
2.What percent of communities nationwide utilize FAR's?
3.Has there been any studies that indicate the the increase or decrease in property value as a result of FAR implementation.
I live in a community where there is a very strong builder/developer lobby. Statements have been made that imposing an FAR is unconstitutional because it take rights away from the property owners and decreases property values. I live in an area that developers have been targeting for infill development replacing homes of 1200 square feet with homes of 2500-4000 square feet on lots mostly under 9000 sq ft. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and advice.
