Accessory Dwelling Units

Accessory Dwelling Units - Ordinance

On January 1, 2020, the State enacted new laws for accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and junior accessory dwelling units (JADUs). Our Department has been preparing a new ADU Ordinance to implement the State laws and reduce barriers to the development and preservation of these sources of lower-cost housing.

Please note the Governor’s Executive order modifying some noticing requirements related to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
