Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs – also called granny flats or in-law units) are now allowed on all properties with a single-family home.
State legislation passed in 2019 led to substantial updates to the City’s ADU ordinance. In general, the new regulations:
* Except for Junior ADUs which are smaller units that share a bathroom with the main residence.
Additional ADU options are available for multi-family properties.
