NOW, BE IT ENACTED BY THE COUNCIL OF THE METROPOLITAN GOVERNMENT OF NASHVILLE AND DAVIDSON COUNTY:

i. If both units of the two-family dwelling are owned by the same person, and one of the two units is the primary residence of the owner, the owner may apply for one (1) permit applicable to one (1) of the units. Prior to the issuance of such permit, an instrument shall be prepared and recorded with the register's office covenanting that the two-family dwelling may only be used under the conditions listed herein for so long as the STRP-Owner-occupied permit is valid.

ii. If the two-family dwelling units are owned by different persons, and each unit is the primary residence of the corresponding owner, then each owner may be issued a separate permit. No more than two (2) permits may be issued per lot for these two-family dwelling units, and only one (1) permit may be issued per dwelling unit.

Agenda Analysis

Analysis

 

This ordinance, as substituted, amends the Metropolitan Code pertaining to owner-occupied STRP permits for two-family dwellings. The Code currently requires both dwellings to be under the same ownership in order for a two-family dwelling to have an owner-occupied STRP permit. This ordinance would create a mechanism whereby two separate owner-occupied STRP permits could be issued for two-family dwellings when the units are owned by different persons and each unit is the primary residence of the corresponding owner. No more than two permits could be issued per lot, and only one permit could be issued per dwelling unit.

 

This ordinance has been approved by the Planning Commission.
