Mobile homes are permitted as garden suites in some zones. A highly visible tiny home housing project by a local homelessness support organization means this municipality has seen the value of tiny homes.

Tiny home on foundation as secondary residence

Mobile homes will only be permitted as garden suites in the RC1 and RC2 zones.”
