There are new regulations in Minneapolis for new homes after the city council approved new zoning amendments.

The council addressed the issue because of complaints, especially in southwest Minneapolis. Some neighbors are concerned that construction of newer, bigger homes is ruining the charm of their neighborhoods.

Part of the amendment includes height limits for homes, requirements for a specific amount of yard space and incentives for high-quality construction materials.

The rules and regulations start October 1.
