Treatment of residential structures occupied by persons with handicaps.

(1) Counties and cities planning under the act may not enact or maintain an ordinance, development regulation, zoning regulation or official control, policy, or administrative practice which treats a residential structure occupied by persons with handicaps differently than a similar residential structure occupied by a family or other unrelated individuals.
(2) The term "handicap" is defined by the federal Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 (42 U.S.C. Sec. 3602). It pertains to a person who:
(a) Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of their major life activities;
(b) Has a record of having such impairment; or
(c) Is regarded as having such impairment.
It does not include current, illegal use of or addiction to a controlled substance (as defined in 21 U.S.C. Sec. 802).
