The object of this proposal is to add a new value "residential_home" to the "amenity"-tag amenity=residential_home

Recommended Tags:



There are places where people, who for different reasons can't stay alone or in their families, live. The idea is to create a tag/amenity that covers these places in general and which can be specified in more details by adding additional tags e.g. according to the people who live there

This is not intended for shelters (e.g. for the homeless), or temporary homes for people having experienced domestic violence.
