FAQ - Land Use Planning

Can I have a guest house? Can I have mother-in-law quarters?

The County considers a guest house a dwelling. The parcel size must be large enough for the zone to allow two dwellings. Using the Rural Residential (RR-5) zone as an example, if the parcel is ten acres in size, then two dwellings may be on the property because the requirement for the RR-5 zone is one dwelling per five acres.
