Yes. I'm glad Houston has been relaxing those requirements.

It's just an example of how Houston regulates land use. Apparently, they've been relaxing their parking requirements. That's a good thing.

Ha, unless you're talking about right in the heart of a major city or Chicago, it is absurdly common.

Most millenial conservatives are more of the libertarian type. So I would look at the area with the most millenial conservatives which would be Oklahoma City. I'm not buying these Colorado metros are libertarian as many have suggested. With the influx of people from California into Colorado it is very much a far left state now, the polar opposite of libertarianism who's ideology revolves around the individual rather than the collective. Although their decendence into a far left tolitarian hell hole has been hampered because there are many rural areas in Colorado who have rejected it.

Cities themselves revolve the collective good. Like roads and schools.

"Libertarian" and "metro" is an oxymoron because of that. Which is why the OP will never find what they are looking for.

Exhibit A of my earlier post...

True libertarians reject and make abject statements to both conservative and liberal ideals. The majority of folks who label themselves libertarians poopoo on liberalism far more than conservatism.

Nowadays...Libertarian means rejection of most liberal ideals; and apathy towards most conservative ideals. If you outwardly reject liberalism and don't outwardly champion conservatism.....you're now "libertarian".

As others have said; there aren't really libertarian metro areas as cities/metros by virtue of their existence can't really support libertarian ideals. You can't be ruggedly individual and without the influence of others when you live in a city.

Closest thing you'll find to an area that actually embraces true libertarian ideals is New Hampshire. I wouldn't really call that a "metro area" but I guess in theory a good bit of southern NH is part of the Boston metro area.
