Rental properties could face new codes

Andrew Pericas / THE STATE PRESS
Hugh Hallman proposes that renters and owners in Tempe be limited to three registered vehicles per property at an Ad Hoc Rental Housing Task Force meeting Tuesday.

After a few seconds, he stoops over and picks up the dumbbells that are resting at his feet. It's time for another set.

    To Shannon Fabian, working out is an obsession that started in high school. He says he started bulking up to overcome his lackluster performance on the track team and his social short-comings.
