Regulation of the Day 106: Clotheslines

Some homeowners’ associations ban clotheslines. For people who would like to use clotheslines and aren’t allowed to, this presents a problem. Luckily, there are three solutions:

  1. Convince the homeowners’ association that their ban is unreasonable. Get it repealed. Or compromise. Maybe restrict clotheslines to backyards so they stay out of sight.
  2. Move somewhere else. Clotheslines are allowed in most places.
  3. Get regulators involved. Pass a law overriding any homeowners’ association clothesline bans.

Guess which option is being considered in Massachusetts? Hint: it’s not either of the first two.
