The number of unrelated adults that can live in a dwelling unit is regulated by the definition of family in the Mansfield Zoning Regulations. Three (3) unrelated adults can live in a rental unit established on or after August 15, 2010, while rental units established prior to that date are allowed four (4) unrelated adults. The definition also provides exceptions to those maximums for functional families and those that qualify for “reasonable accommodation” under the Americans with Disabilities and Fair Housing Acts.
