How many people can live in a home?
The zoning office uses the zoning ordinance definition of a family to determine occupancy of a dwelling unit. According to the Zoning Ordinance, Definitions, a family means "one person or two or more persons related by blood, adoption or marriage, living and cooking together as a single housekeeping unit, with no more than two boarders, or a group of not more than three unrelated persons living together as a single housekeeping unit." For more information on this, please see the Community Planning & Building Department’s flyer on Residential Occupancy. Residential Occupancy Flyer
