Zoning provisions for temporary family healthcare structures.  Provides that zoning ordinances for all purposes shall consider temporary family healthcare structures (i) for use by a caregiver in providing care for a mentally or physically impaired person and (ii) on property owned or occupied by the caregiver as his residence as a permitted accessory use in any single-family residential zoning district. Such structures shall not require a special use permit or be subjected to any other local requirements beyond those imposed upon other authorized accessory structures. A caregiver shall be either related by blood, marriage, or adoption to or the legally appointed guardian of the mentally or physically impaired person for whom he is caring. Read the Bill »
