Accessory dwelling units — also called ADUs, secondary units, or granny flats — are small living units, including a kitchen and bathroom, on a property that has one single-family home.
There are many benefits to ADUs, including that they:
- Create more affordable housing for our community, family members, or disabled persons;
- Provide an income opportunity for homeowners;
- Promote infill development; and
- Encourage the use of public transportation.
- Single-family lots that are 3,000 square feet or larger may qualify for an ADU.
- Use the ADU Universal Checklist to learn about eligiblity, rules about location and size, and other development standards and requirements.
