An ordinance prohibiting fraternity and sorority houses from opening within 1,000 feet of each other has been endorsed by the city Planning Commission and awaits a decision by the City Council.
The ordinance would affect any new fraternity or sorority seeking to operate a house in the city or any that has lost its permit to operate and seeks a new one.
The city's unofficial frat row, six fraternity houses on Teri Place, has been blamed for numerous problems, including parking congestion and out-of-control parties.
Residents have been complaining about the problems for years.
The council will consider the ordinance April 21.
