Town Council Work Session

Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Council to Discuss Accessory Dwelling Unit Regulations

On February 19 at 6 p.m., prior to the regular Council meeting, the Town Council will hold a work session to discuss regulating accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in Town.  An ADU is a second dwelling unit located on a lot with a single-family house.  An attached ADU is one that is located inside the house, while a detached ADU is one that is in an accessory building in a rear yard. 

The County recently made substantial changes to the rules governing ADUs, and the Town has the authority to adopt additional rules for ADUs located within the Town.  At the work session, the Town Council will review and discuss the Land Use Committee’s recommendations for additional regulations.

Residents are welcome to attend the work session but will not be able to participate in the discussion.  Any new regulations supported by the Town Council will be publicly advertised and subject to a future public hearing.
