DRAFT ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT ORDINANCE TO BE REVIEWED BY PLANNING COMMISSION

On September 7, 2017 the Planning Commission will hold a public meeting to consider proposed amendments to the Santa Barbara Municipal Code Title 30 related to Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). We encourage you to stay informed and attend the public hearing. The ADU webpage includes information about this work effort at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/ADU. To receive updates of future meetings regarding ADUs, please subscribe for notifications by following the instructions under the “Get Involved” tab on the ADU webpage. 

Effective January 1, 2017, new state legislation (AB 2299 and SB 1069) supersedes the City's former regulations for Secondary Dwelling Units. Until the City adopts its own ordinance, a local government is required to ministerially approve ADUs if the unit complies with certain parking requirements, the maximum allowable size of an ADU, and setback requirements.

On Thursday, August 31, 2017, the Planning Commission agenda and staff report on this item will be available at 630 Garden Street and online at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/PC. Meetings can be viewed live on City TV-18, or on your computer at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/CityTV. A rebroadcast schedule can be found at www.SantaBarbaraCA.gov/CityTVProgramGuide.
