Kennewick to vote on detached mother-in-laws on residential property
KENNEWICK, Wash. -- It's becoming more common to have more than one generation living under a single roof.

Kennewick is looking to change the rules to allow mother-in-law units on people's property.

Right now, a separate living area has to be attached to the main structure.

This change would allow a new living space of up to 800-square feet that could go elsewhere on the property.

Only one person will be allowed to live in an outbuilding or mother-in-law.

This could also allow people to rent out the apartment on their property.

Council plans to vote on the changes Tuesday.
