  • #2 here concerns me. Large parts of the east side are R1. Is the idea to segregate all Brown students to the fox point/mt hope areas? And wouldn’t that drive up rents in those areas? I wonder how many properties this would affect.

    Perhaps some students can afford to live alone or with only one roommate, but I imagine they would be the exception.
