City of Greeley Seeks Public Input Regarding Household Occupancy Standards

City of Greeley officials invite the public to visit to complete a short survey about household occupancy standards, which limit the number of unrelated people allowed to live in a house.

In most parts of Greeley, the city’s current rules allow no more than two unrelated adults to live in a house. City officials want to reevaluate this standard as part of the city’s Development Code update.

Some Colorado cities have increased the number of unrelated individuals allowed to share a dwelling in response to increasing housing costs, low housing availability, shifting societal norms, and changing demographics.

City staff will aggregate the responses and discuss the results at the Jan. 12 Planning Commission work session and the Jan. 26 Greeley City Council Work Session. City officials will take additional feedback after the work session leading up to possible hearings later this year.

The survey will remain open through at least through Jan. 26, 2021.

Public input will help staff and decision-makers evaluate the possibility of increasing the number of unrelated individuals allowed to share a home. Additional background information and a brief public survey are available at For questions about the survey, Greeley’s household occupancy standards, or the process please contact Caleb Jackson, planner II, at 970-350-9876 or
