Group homes in Chandler might be more closely regulated if a proposed zoning-code amendment is approved.
Chandler City Council unanimously voted during its regular meeting Oct. 24 to start the process that might change the code.
The proposed amendment would limit group homes to five residents or fewer and require them to be separated by at least 1,200 feet from another residential group home.
Existing group homes would not need to comply with these regulations if approved, said David de la Torre, principal planner with the city.
