Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This legislation preempts local government land use practices by redefining "family" in state law, mandating an opening in local zoning codes to permit all forms of co-housing, boarding houses and student housing in single-family neighborhoods statewide.  It would supersede all local ordinances and redefine "family" to include any group of people, of any size, living together.  ACCG believes that local governments should be able to define family for residential areas in order to protect the integrity of single family neighborhoods.
