KSL News A group of developers has filed suit against the city of Syracuse, claiming its new home building requirements are unconstitutional.

The ordinance requires 50 percent of the front and sidewalls of all new homes to be brick, stone or natural wood. It also requires new homes to have a two-car garage of at least 400 feet.

Builders say the restrictions will increase the cost of constructing homes by two to six percent. City leaders say they simply want a balanced community.

The city council will hold a public hearing July 22nd to discuss the issue.
