The Golden Valley Planning Commission is asking residents to take a survey on Accessory Dwelling Units before making potential zoning code changes. The survey is open until July 1, 2022.
Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) refers to a secondary housing unit or apartment that exists on the same property as a single-family residence, either attached or detached from the primary residence. These dwellings are commonly used for housing an adult child or an aging parent(s) or for property owners to make supplemental income by renting out the unit (see image). In nearly all cases, the ADU is smaller than the principal home, differentiating this housing type from a true duplex or twin home.
How Do You Feel About ADUs?
Before making a recommendation to the City Council, the Planning Commission is asking residents to take a survey in order to gather information regarding public knowledge, need, and opinion on ADUs.
