City councilors approve three new ordinances Dec. 13th, 2019

Two speak up for tiny homes

The tiny home ordinance defines a tiny home as a single-family, non-mobile structure of 400 square feet or less; changes the residential mobile home park provisions of the existing code to allow for tiny homes; and creates a new subdivision exclusively for tiny homes, the Residential Tiny Home Subdivision.

Community Development Manager Bill Morris said the ordinance was prompted by public inquiries and new state codes, as well as a desire to ensure the tiny homes would not be detrimental to the city and its residents.

“The genesis for all this was that staff started receiving a lot of inquiries about tiny homes over the last year and so did the state,” he said. “State enacted their own administrative codes to define these things. So we wanted to get out in front of these things, to have something on the books if these did pop up.”

Carla Murphy said she supported having “reasonable rules and regulations and policies” but wanted to see more leeway in where the homes could be located.
