I totally agree, @luckless pedestrian !Yeah I would say no - subdivision is merely approving adequate access to lots - zoning controls what happens on the lot - I don't think you can differentiate between rental or condo/ownership in zoning
a dwelling is a dwelling
Although, a community likely could do this
I totally agree, @luckless pedestrian !
A subdivision should be just that -- a division of land. Obviously, regulations can stipulate that the subsequent lots be buildable but, in my experience in NYS and GA, I would argue that the subdivision process is certainly not the place to deny or approve based on who is going to live there. That's discrimination.
And since zoning is about land use, not people, I would argue that as long as it's long-term rental property, zoning can't differentiate between rentals and owner-occupied.
... But having said that, I have seen regulations that require owner-occupation for home businesses and short term vacation rentals, so maybe I'm wrong that zoning can't regulate it.
I totally agree -- especially for home occupations in this digital age.as an aside - I am shocked there aren't more cases of people appealing home occupation and vacation rentals to say that they are a customary use of a dwelling
