Citizens of Hattiesburg are voicing their opinions about three proposed ordinances.
The proposals, which are designed to protect the values of single-family residential homes, are sparking some controversy.
Front and center is the ordinance that would make it unlawful for two or more people to occupy a single-family home if they are not related by blood or are not living together as a couple.
Also proposed is a noise ordinance that would designate quiet hours between 10 p.m. And 6 a.m.
Third, a proposed ordinance would make it unlawful to park automobiles in the front yard.
