The City Council approved several zoning changes recommended by the Coolidge Planning and Zoning Commission during their meeting on May 29.
The first item allows for the construction of manufactured homes in agricultural land, a change that comes from common knowledge that farmer often bring these homes in to house employees. In the past, citizens have been turned down when requesting these homes “without any compelling reason as to why this restriction is in place,” according to the P&Z report.
The zoning code amendment allows manufactured homes to be built with a conditional use permit. The homes must be double-wide, explained as mostly for aesthetic purposes, may not be more than three years old and must be ground-set.
“Our local municipalities continue to work to improve their zoning and land use rules and restrictions as it relates to Medical Marijuana uses, which allows our industry to grow and develop in a positive manner that benefits the surrounding community and business owners.”
