By law, a residentially zoned structure cannot house more than six (6) people. In 2017, a plan was put in place to allow residentially zoned properties to legally obtain Rooming/Boarding House licenses. In order to do this, a person with a disability or someone representing a person with a disability must submit a Reasonable Accommodation Request to a City of Austin employee. The RA Request form can be downloaded at http://www.austintexas.gov/rooming-and-boarding. These can be turned in directly to the City of Austin Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Office or to the Austin Code Department with the Operating License Application.
