New Accessory Dwelling Unit Regulations

At the next Planning Commission meeting scheduled for February 14, staff will present a Text Amendment reflecting recent changes to the State’s Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) law. ADUs can now be up to 18 feet in height where near high-quality transit or where on a multi-family zoned property. Also, the front setback requirements can no longer be used to restrict certain ADUs from being developed on a property. Some additional changes to the Development and Municipal Code are being bundled into the Text Amendment, which are:

  • Removing the need for a Final Parcel Map with a dedication to go to the City Council for approval.

  • Changes to the allowed landscaping hours on Sundays.

  • Regulations for nuisance nonresidential properties.
