A. Purpose: The purpose of this article is to establish a procedure for disabled persons, or their representatives, to request a reasonable accommodation from the city's zoning laws, building codes, and land use regulations, policies, and procedures to provide disabled persons with an opportunity to use and enjoy housing equal to that of nondisabled persons.
B. Who May Apply: A request for a reasonable accommodation may be made by any disabled person, his/her representative, or a developer or provider of housing for disabled persons, when the application of a zoning law, building code provision, or other land use regulation, policy, or practice acts as a barrier to a disabled person's equal opportunity to use and enjoy housing.
C. What Can Be Requested: A request for a reasonable accommodation may include a modification to or exception from the rules, standards, or practices for the siting, development, or use of housing or housing related facilities, in order to allow a disabled person an equal opportunity to use and enjoy housing in accordance with the fair housing laws. Requests for a reasonable accommodation shall be made in the manner prescribed by this article. (Ord. 12-O-2634, eff. 1-4-2013)
