Condo reverses policy on unmarried couples

Posted: Updated:
VENICE (AP) -

A Florida condominium association is reversing a policy that allowed only singles and husband-and-wife couples to buy or lease units in the complex after an uproar from gay-rights activists.
 
The Sarasota Herald-Tribune reports the Casa Di amici Condominium Association Inc. in Venice held a special meeting Thursday.
 
The association had approved a policy on July 17 that barred unmarried couples from the complex. Some considered the policy discriminatory against gay couples, who cannot legally marry in Florida.
 
Board member Bill Moniz said at the meeting Thursday the police was meant to keep corporations from buying multiple units in the neighborhood, not discriminate.
 
The revised policy replaces all references to husband-and-wife to two human beings.
 
Condominium owners will vote on the amendments within 45 days.
