Peter’s POV – January 2017

ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS

This is really earth shattering news!

A short time ago Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 1069 and AB 2299, known as the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) State Law, effective January 1, 2017. These laws are a significant change to the State’s ADU regulations. The new laws require that local jurisdictions allow ADUs by-right under certain mandatory development standards, and require that local jurisdictions, if seeking to establish additional regulations, do so via an ordinance facilitating the ministerial creation of ADUs, consistent with state law.
