Tiny House Pocket Neighborhoods Approved in Rockledge, Florida

In June of 2015 the Rockledge City Council moved forward with new zoning regulations that will allow for the creation of tiny house developments.

Pocket neighborhoods encompass a cluster of tiny houses gathered around a shared open space. Neighbors know each other and are willing to look out for each other. A pocket neighborhood is also well-suited to empty nesters and senior citizens, who crave for a sense of community without the upkeep of a regular-sized house.floridatoday.com

The city’s plan calls for tiny houses of at least 250 square feet, with an additional 100 square feet for each additional resident.

Rene Hardee, who led the campaign for the new zoning regulations, is now looking for developers interested in creating a tiny house pocket neighborhood, with her family among the first residents.
