All

We have over the door hangers for shirts, light weight clothes, that dry
quickly. The jeans etc we hang outside. Fortunately our neighbors can't see
our clothes line.

Here's some reasons in favor of line drying:

The site, which is an advocacy site for line drying of clothes, is likely to
have other resources that would help you.  see also
http://laundry.about.com/od/ecofriendlylaundry/u/Green-Your-Laundry-Routine.
htm .  Note that clothes dryers represent a fire risk which cause thousands
of fires every year.

Finally, you could try to find others who would like to do this, who have
less of a troublemaker rep, to make the proposal. Alternatively, you can
charge in and make the case, while behind the scenes organizing support.

by the way, the Rules Committee of our condo association is holding hearings
on some revisions to the book of rules.  One rule forbids drying laundry on
balconies.  The condo board, however, is becoming sensitive to the cost of
energy, which represents 1/3 of operating costs.

By the same token, they are a stodgy lot, and have already pegged me as a
trouble maker.  

In short, does anyone out there have knowledge of this issue has been
contested, or of success stories, etc...
