Residential use of storage containers discussed

By Denise Lana,

With the housing shortage in Decorah, Planning & Zoning Committee members have spent time during P&Z’s past three monthly meetings discussing the possibility of using retrofitted storage containers as residential construction. Additionally, storage containers have been considered in conjunction with the current proposed amendments to the city’s code regarding accessory buildings being used as dwelling units.

Currently, city code prohibits storage containers in all residential zoning districts, but P&Z is working on language that would possibly allow them to be used as a construction material.
