Gain an understanding of the zoning provisions for community residences and recovery communities that comply with the Fair Housing Act and statewide zoning laws.

Headlines across the nation trumpet the scam artists raking in big bucks with phony sober living homes. Cities, especially in warm climates, are being inundated with sober homes and recovery communities but all too many municipalities respond with overreaching zoning regulations the courts are obligated to strike down for violating the nations Fair Housing Act. Individual court decisions often seem contradictory. Writing zoning provisions for community residences for people with disabilities (group homes, sober homes, recovery communities, small halfway houses) that comply with the Fair Housing Act and statewide zoning laws is a complicated, very nuanced art and science.

This topic reveals the bases for legal zoning for community residences for people with disabilities. It teaches the ins and outs of how to legally zone for the growing variety of community residences for people with disabilities, with a focus on innovative approaches to zoning for sober living homes and recovery communities in accord with the Fair Housing Act. It explains the impact of statewide zoning laws on local zoning for community residences and how to overcome statewide zoning provisions that run afoul of the Fair Housing Act.
