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.

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Rosa Zoning Code Section 20-42.130 and that portion of 20-36.040 (parking) pertaining to accessory dwelling units are superseded by state law.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.
