Jerome Town Council passed an ordinance Tuesday limiting the height and use of accessory buildings.
Ordinance 446 amends the definition of an “accessory building” as being a building or structure that is “visually” subordinate to the main building. The proposed amendment adds that an accessory building “shall not be used for human habitation.”
The amendment also dictates that the building height should be no greater than 14 feet. The current ordinance allows up to 25 feet.
Council unanimously approved the ordinance with a change to define accessory buildings as garages, carports and sheds.
