New information about Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) is now available. The information reflects changes in the County’s Zoning Text Amendment 19-01 that took effect on Dec. 31.
An ADU is a second dwelling that is part of an existing single-family detached home and is used as a completely independent living facility with its own provisions. An ADU may not be used as a short-term vacation rental.
To learn more about ADUs or to apply for an ADU license, visit the DHCA Licensing and Registration Class 3 Accessory Dwelling Unit webpage or call 311 (240-777-0311).
