ADUs Provide More Housing Options
Accessory dwelling, paired with other housing initiatives, have the potential play a key component in the affordable housing crisis.
Most people build an accessory dwelling units to house family or for the extra income, but there are more widespread positive effects.
California alone has nearly 8 million single-family homes. If only 10 percent of homeowners built an accessory dwelling unit we’d add 800,000 units of housing without any cost or burden on the state.
Building Better Communities
When our neighborhoods become denser it increases revenue for the city to maintain schools, parks, and roads. Higher density means more foot traffic for local businesses. It also brings financial or social benefits to homeowners. Renters benefit by having a wider variety of housing options in neighborhoods where apartments are limited or schools are better.
