Summary: A subject jurisdiction must allow one ADU as an accessory use wherever the jurisdiction also allows single-unit detached homes. The bill prohibits subject jurisdictions from imposing new parking requirements or requiring that the ADU be owner occupied. The administrative approval process must use objective standards only, and must not include design or dimension standards that are more restrictive than the standards for single-unit detached dwellings in the same zoning district. The bill creates the ADU Fee Reduction and Encouragement Grant Program in the division to provide grants to ADU supportive jurisdictions for activities that promote ADUs, including offsetting costs related to pre-approved plans, giving technical assistance, or reducing permitting fees and other development costs.
