Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance Amendments

Body

Note: For information on Preapproved ADU Program, click here.

In 2022, the state passed legislation to make Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) easier to build. The new state laws, effective January 1, 2023, increase maximum building height and make a few technical changes. In response, the City adopted amendments to the ADU Ordinances on February 14, 2023 to comply with state law, clean-up a few items, and make amendments to local standards to further facilitate ADUs.
