On Aug. 17, 2023 City Council approved an increase in the allowable occupancy per dwelling unit to five unrelated people citywide to add more affordable housing opportunities in the community.
In the Land Use Code, the former number of unrelated people per dwelling unit is three for lower density residential zoning districts, and four in most other areas of the city. The increase does not apply to nonconforming residential properties that have more dwelling units than the current zoning allows. On these properties, the former limit of three or four will continue to apply. The city does not regulate how many family members may occupy a dwelling unit.
Comments or questions about the project can be directed to Karl Guiler, Senior Policy Advisor.
