A proposed zoning change could curb future addiction recovery homes in Findlay. The Courier reports zoning ordinances that allow up to five unrelated people to live together in a single-family home are being reviewed. ADAMHS executive director Precia Stuby says if the zoning regulations change it will shrink the pool of locations suitable for recovery homes.
Existing homes would be grandfathered into the current zoning laws. That means the recovery house planned for Greendale Avenue wouldn’t be affected. The home will eventually play host to four recovering female addicts and a house leader. Stuby says if the laws are changed they would still look for buildings that could house five people. She added it wouldn’t be cost effective to buy more homes and hire more leaders in order to fit any new zoning requirements.
