What is an Accessory Dwelling Unit and what are the benefits? ADUs are units that can provide alternative housing choices. These units are commonly referred to as Granny Flats, In-Law units, or Junior units.

This unit can be built on your current home site to meet the special needs of individuals and families, adult children, elderly parents, disabled, or those of low and very low income.

The State of California has recently passed legislation that eliminates barriers, and requires local cities to facilitate the construction of these units on lots with a single-family residence.

For complete ADU requirements, contact the Planning Division at (707) 428-7461 or the Building Division at (707) 428-7451.
