Zoning Ordinance regulations limit the number to three unrelated individuals residing in a dwelling unit. For dwelling units with four or five unrelated residents, the City created an administrative process for certifying Unrelated Group Family Uses.
Each proposed Unrelated Group Family Use is required to pass a housing inspection.
There is a 300 foot separation requirement in the Zoning Ordinance between Unrelated Group Family Uses.
There is also a Zoning Ordinance requirement to have at least two improved, on-site parking spaces for Unrelated Group Family Uses.
The City maintains a complete listing of approved Unrelated Group Use properties in Rock Island.
Application Fee Required
There is an initial $100 application fee. There is a subsequent $60 re-certification application fee every two years.
