Ordinance No. 4-2021 Relating to Tiny Homes
In a story we posted in August last year, City Council recognized tiny-homes as a viable and affordable development option and provided advisability to staff to draft an ordinance amending the minimum living area requirements for residential units and allow tiny homes. City staff is recommending allowing tiny-homes as part of a pocket neighborhood concept.
The proposed ordinance states that the living space per tiny home unit shall be a minimum of 350 square feet and a maximum of 600 square feet.
This proposed ordinance allows for a cottage home development on a minimum two-acre site with a minimum of five residential dwelling units and common area of at least 6,500 square feet.
The proposed ordinance also states the location of the cottage home development will have to be able to provide water and sewer service and be adequate to support the cottage home development; and development is compatible with surrounding neighborhoods including traffic circulation, pedestrian access, visual impacts and scale of development.
A tiny house would also have to be designed, built and inspected consistent with the current Florida Building Code.
At a meeting on January 20, 2021, the Planning and Zoning Commission considered this ordinance and recommended approval, 6-0, as presented, (one member was not present during the vote.)
