Zoning    Post-Disaster Management   
Village Of Aurora   
| Suburban |
If a dwelling is rendered uninhabitable due to fire, flood, or similar natural or manmade disaster, the Zoning Board of Appeals may authorize the placement of an emergency dwelling in that location. The units must meet all applicable building, fire, health, and other codes. An emergency dwelling must have running water and be connected to a totally enclosed septic system or public sewer. The emergency dwellings shall be removed within ten days of the issuance of the Certificate of Occupancy for the repaired or replaced dwelling. Maximum duration of an emergency dwelling is one year, but it can be extended to a maximum of two years in cases of documented hardship. The hardship must result from something outside the control of the occupant.
