Changes to the Boarding and Group Housing Regulations

Metro Council recognizes that boarding and group housing may not be adequately regulated and enforced in residential areas and has asked Planning & Design Services (PDS) to carry out a review of local ordinances concerning group housing. Group housing is housing that is temporary in nature and includes boarding houses, transitional houses, rehabilitation homes, and homeless shelters. It does not apply to hotels, short term rentals, and bed & breakfest inns.

Community Meetings

Before submitting any recommendations to the Planning Commission and Metro Council, PDS wants to hear from the community. In addition to a public hearing before the Planning Commission, staff will hold three identical virtual meetings to get input and ideas from citizens. The meetings will be held October 14, 2020, October 17, 2020, and October 21, 2020.
