Land Use
The bill requires that family childcare homes be classified as residences for purposes of licensure and local regulations, including zoning, land use development, fire and life safety, and building codes. The bill removes a local government’s ability to treat these facilities as commercial which many do because these are operating childcare facilities. CML consistently opposes the state infringing in local land use.
