Presentation: Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Discussion and Ordinance




As part of our implementation work with the Ignite! Strategic Plan, Ignite! Comprehensive Plan, and Communities for All Ages (CFAA) Program, Staff has been researching and identifying opportunities to increase housing diversity and choice throughout the community.  Accessory Dwelling Units (or ADUs) are identified as a tool available to increase housing diversity while protecting existing neighborhoods for implementation in our Strong Neighborhoods and Healthy Choice Plan Element (Element 3.2) of the Ignite! Comprehensive Plan.   While ADUs are currently permitted in the City, the goal with the ADU ordinance update is to strengthen our current regulations, protect existing neighborhoods, encourage aging in place, and advance efforts for implementation of Ignite! Comprehensive Plan.


Staff has been collaborating with the CEDC on this effort shortly after adoption of the Ignite! Comprehensive Plan.  This presentation provides an overview of ADUs, history of this process, and action items requested to advance this effort to the next steps.
