Allow Home Child Care In Homeowners' Association Community


The bill allows a homeowner in a community organized under the "Colorado Common Interest Ownership Act" to operate a licensed family child care home, as defined in state laws governing child care facilities, notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the community's governing documents. The community's regulations concerning architectural control, parking, landscaping, noise, and other matters continue to apply, but the community must make reasonable accommodations for any requirements pertaining to fences under the state's child care home licensing laws. The owner or operator of the child care home may also be required to carry additional liability insurance. The bill does not apply to a community qualified as housing for older persons under federal law.
