City staff to discuss local ordinance and standards

PASO ROBLES, CA –February 8, 2023   The Paso Robles City Library is pleased to host City planning staff on Wednesday, March 8, 5:30-6:30 pm in the Library Conference Room as they present information about the city’s local Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinance and standards of operation adopted last December. Topics to be covered include:

    What is an ADU? 

    Where in the city are ADUs allowed? 

    What are the development standards for an ADU (floor area, height, setbacks, etc.)?

    Can part of a residence or a detached building be converted into an ADU?

    Can tiny houses or recreational vehicles be used as an ADU?

    What is the process and cost to permit and construct an ADU? 

The State of California has identified ADUs, sometimes referred to as mother-in-law units, second units, granny flats, and rear yard dwellings, as a significant way to help address the statewide housing crisis. ADUs are a relatively affordable way to add extra housing for family members and can serve as a source of rental income. Attend this special program and learn about this new opportunity. Registration is required for each attendant. For ages 16+.
