SEC. 16-501.1.  APPLICABILITY.
   (A)   A request for reasonable accommodation may be made by any person with a disability, their representative, or entity when the application of a zoning law or other land use regulation, policy or practice acts as a barrier to fair housing opportunities. A person with a disability is a person who has a physical or mental impairment that limits or substantially limits one or more major life activities, anyone who is regarded as having such impairment or anyone who has a record of such impairment. This section is intended to apply to those persons who are considered disabled under the Acts. A reasonable accommodation may be approved only for the benefit of one or more persons with a disability.
   (B)   A request for reasonable accommodation may include a modification or exception to the rules, standards and practices for the siting, development and use of housing or housing-related facilities that would eliminate regulatory barriers and provide a person with a disability equal opportunity to housing of their choice. Facilities serving persons with disabilities, not in compliance with this chapter at the time of adoption of this division, may qualify for a reasonable accommodation permit pursuant to this division.
