On the heels of Gering city government giving approval for small cottage homes on a lot in their community, the Scottsbluff city council will consider Monday evening an ordinance providing for a tiny home community planned development.
The homes would be 200-700 square feet of living area fixed to a permanent foundation with water and sewer service in an area with adequate parking facilities, open spaces, and recreation facilities. The ordinance would allow small neighborhoods of tiny homes grouped together on a minimum of three acres and allow existing mobile home parks or other areas to be repurposed as tiny home communities if appropriate.
The council will also consider on second reading a one and a half percent restaurant tax and an ordinance defining microbreweries and brew pubs and providing for them in a zoning code.
The Scotts Bluff County Commissioners and the Gering School Board will both hold public hearings to approve their fiscal 2016-17 budgets and mill levies this evening. The commissioners will also get an update on the Nebraska Public Power District transmission project, consider membership in the Panhandle Public Health District, and consider renewal of a Wyoming Department of Corrections juvenile holding contract.
