Learn more about Accessory Dwelling Units — also called ADUs, secondary units, or granny flats — are small living units, including a kitchen and bathroom, on properties zoned residential with a single-family home, duplex home, or multifamily building in place. Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs) are small (less than 500 square feet) that must be converting existing square footage of a single-family home. ADU & JADU information and requirements can be found on the ADU Zoning Ordinance.
The Building Safety and Housing Department launched the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Incentive Program and the Safe ADU Legalization Program that feature the waiver of all City permitting fees for construction of a new ADU and legalization of a non-permitted ADU or JADU.
