Florissant City Council Approves Definition of Family
After months of review and discussion, Florissant has a matching definition as well as a few new laws.
The ordinance now has a matching definition for family in both the zoning and building codes.
The ordinance now reads:

b. Two (2) individuals or married couple and the children thereof, including adopted children, foster children and grandchildren, and no more than two (2) other persons related to the individuals or married couple by blood or marriage and no more than two (2) other individuals; or
c. A group of not more than four (4) persons not related by blood or marriage and not living as a group home but living together as a single housekeeping unit in a dwelling unit as distinguished from a boarding house; or
d. A group of nine (9) or fewer unrelated mentally or physically handicapped persons (group home), excluding supervisory persons acting as house parents or guardians, who need not be related to each other or to any of the mentally or physically handicapped individuals residing in a dwelling unit as distinguished from a boarding house.
