ARE YOU READY
TO BUILD ONE?
The addition of an accessory dwelling unit can increase the value of your property, provide rental income, accommodate a family member, or increase your living space. Discover what an ADU is, what its benefits are, and how to get started.
They’ve been called backyard homes, granny flats, in-law units, backyard cottages, secondary units, tiny houses, and more. Whatever you prefer to call them, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) have been garnering a lot of buzz in and around our community since January 2017 when new State laws took effect that created new opportunities for housing. In fact, the new ADU Ordinance was adopted on April 30, 2019 and took effect on May 30, 2019.
Though there have been countless additions to the State law, one thing is for certain ADUs are here to stay and now is the time to move from conversating and into action so that you may real the countless subsidies, and grant programs City, County and State- wide.

ADUs can serve a variety of needs—an additional revenue stream, from rental income that can reduce monthly expenses, provide personal space for extended family, or offer you more freedom as you age by downsizing and freeing up the main home for rental.
