Council members previously passed a casitas ordinance in October, but it was paused last month to reconsider size restrictions.
The Tucson City Council has approved a change to a new rule allowing the construction of casitas.
Casitas are built alongside main houses on a lot and are similar to a guest house. They’re an affordable housing solution that’s ideal for large families who need extra living space, proponents say. They can also serve as a better alternative to nursing homes for elderly residents.
