Individual tiny homes could be built on a common piece of property, acting as in-between of an apartment and a single family home.

Ethan Hunter, city planner, said the city’s legal department has reviewed the cluster housing code. The Planning Commission unanimously approved it Tuesday, and the City Council will have to approve the cluster housing code for it to go into effect.

The code would mandate manufactured homes have a porch or awning; have pitched roofs and roofing material of a type customarily used on site-constructed houses; have wheels, axles and hitch mechanisms removed; be placed on a concrete slab or brick skirting; and be compatible and similar in appearance with surrounding site-constructed buildings.
