Accessory Dwelling Units

Accessory Dwelling Unit

The City of Santa Rosa is preparing an amendment to the Zoning Code to facilitate the construction of accessory dwelling units on single-family residential parcels in compliance with new state law.

The City of Santa Rosa is preparing an amendment to the Zoning Code to facilitate the construction of accessory dwelling units on single-family residential parcels in compliance with new state law.

An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is an attached or detached residential dwelling, located on the same parcel as an existing single-family dwelling, that provides complete independent living facilities, including sleeping, cooking, bathing, and sanitation.  As of January 1, 2017, Santa Rosa Zoning Code Section 20-42.130 and that portion of 20-36.040 (parking) pertaining to accessory dwelling units are superseded by state law.  City staff have prepared guidance for ADU development until City ordinances implementing state law are enacted.
