Title 17C Land Use Standards
Chapter 17C.190 Use Category Descriptions
Article II. Residential Categories
Group Living is characterized by the residential occupancy of a structure by a group of people who do not meet the definition of Residential Household Living. The size of the group will be larger than the average size of a household. Tenancy is arranged on a month-to-month basis, or for a longer period. Uses where tenancy may be arranged for a shorter period are not considered residential. They are considered to be a form of transient lodging (see the Retail Sales and Service and Community Service categories). Generally, Group Living structures have a common eating area for residents. The residents may or may not receive any combination of care, training or treatment, as long as they also reside at the site.
Accessory uses commonly found are recreational facilities, parking of autos for the occupants and staff, and parking of vehicles for the facility.
Examples include dormitories, communes, fraternities and sororities, monasteries and convents, nursing and convalescent homes, assisted living facilities, confidential shelters, congregate residences, residential care facility for adults or youth, and alternative or post incarceration facilities.
