Unified Development Code and Municipal Code Amendments to address Rooming Houses
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration
Document Description
The City of Santa Clarita is preparing amendments to the Municipal Code and the Unified Development Code. The proposed amendments to the Municipal Code would create the Residential High Occupancy Permit (RHOP) that would require property owners to obtain an RHOP from the City if a single-family dwelling is rented or leased to more than 6 persons age 18 or older. Further, the proposed amendment to the Unified Development Code creates a definition of the "Rooming House", prohibiting them in all zones with the exception of the multiple family residential zones within the City.
