Hampton village board members discussed the possibility of allowing cargo container dwellings and tiny houses while also reviewing a dwindling list of possible nuisance abatement properties Monday during a busy final meeting of the year.
Jeremy Brandt, the county’s planning and zoning administrator, suggested that the board consider issues related to housing trends which are becoming popular across the country, noting that cargo container dwellings and tiny houses are allowed under the county’s newly-adopted planning and zoning regulations.
