Accessory Dwelling Units
In 2010 Council approved an ordinance allowing for the long-term rental of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU). The Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance became effective on February 11, 2010 and remains in effect until 88 new ADUs are created or until February 11, 2015, whichever comes first. At that time the ADU ordinance will conclude until reviewed and the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council takes further action.
