Change of use the previous occupancy, albeit a larger load than typical the use was an R3 since they were technically all the same family. The new occupancy is R1 or R2 depending on the transient/non-transient nature. This may require fire protection.

I am wondering what your process would be for classifying an existing building. The building in question has never had a certificate of occupancy and the town currently has no zoning ordinances. The building has 30 Bedrooms and 2 kitchens. It was originally built for a polygamous family with multiple wives their children. The new owner is using it as a boarding house and they currently have fewer than 16 persons but that number could possibly grow. They are attempting to obtain an occupancy permit for the building and I am looking for suggestions on what the process should be to obtain that.
