Pecos Street resident Gabriel Romero is asking the city to allow him to put a mobile home for his parents next to his house.
But the city attorney warns that this would be "spot zoning."
In an April letter to the city, Romero said his parents are getting to the age where they need a lot more help.
"I have to come from my house often to check up on them," he wrote.
As such, Romero requested that his property at 1309 Pecos St. be rezoned from multi-family residential to mixed residential. Such a move would allow the mobile home.
