Family” means a person living alone, two or more persons related by blood or marriage, or any other analogous family union recognized under federal and/or state statute, as distinguished from a group occupying a hotel, club, or communal residence. For the purposes of this definition, minors living with a parent shall not be counted as part of the maximum number of residents. The purpose of defining family is to assist in the regulation of occupancy standards within dwelling units and to define different types of structures; it is not intended to interfere with the civil rights of individuals who establish relationships under the terms of state and federal laws. (Ord. 6477 § 6, 2013; Ord. 6245 § 3, 2009; Ord. 4229 § 2, 1987.)
