Occupancy Limits Changing
The Lawrence City Commission recently changed the occupancy limits in certain zoning districts. The changes essentially maintain the current three unrelated occupant limit in RS (Single-Dwelling) Zoning Districts and the current four unrelated occupant limit in RM (Multi-Dwelling) Zoning Districts.
The change requires that the Detached Dwelling (single-family) structures in other districts meet the three unrelated occupant limit, but permits four unrelated occupants for other housing types.
Property owners have until August 1, 2015 to comply with the new occupancy regulations.
For more information, see Section 20-601(d) of the Land Development Code or please call (785) 832-3159.
