Walker County Declares Moratorium on Tiny Homes

Walker County has declared a moratorium on applications to place cargo container homes and tiny homes, while a study is done on their safety and affect on property values.
Commissioner Shannon Whitfield said the hold on receiving permit applications will last for 180 days, while the planning and zoning committee makes the study.  They will then make a recommendation to the Commissioner.
The moratorium specifically blocks cargo containers converted for human habitation, and “tiny homes” of 500 square feet or less.
