Types of ADU

There are two types of ADUs - an ADU and a JADU. All residential lots can have one ADU and one JADU.

There are three kinds of ADU construction:

  • Detached: The unit is separated from the primary structure

  • Attached: The unit is attached to the primary structure

  • Converted Existing Space: Space (e.g., master bedroom, attached garage, storage area, or similar use, or an accessory structure) on the lot of the primary residence that is converted into an independent living unit

  • Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU): A specific type of conversion of existing space that is contained entirely within an existing or proposed single-family residence

Single-Family ADU Accessory Dwelling Unit Development Standards

ADUs are permitted in single-family residential zoned properties (R-1). All ADUs shall be constructed with independent access separate from the main residence entrance. All ADUs shall have a living/sleeping area, a kitchen or kitchenette (i.e., stove or hotplate, refrigerator, and sink), and a bathroom that includes a shower or bathtub. ADUs are no longer subject to Lot Coverage and Floor Area Ratios of the city's zoning designation. The following are single-family ADU development standards:

Detached Accessory Dwelling Unit

  • Maximum of two stories or 25 feet

  • ADU shall match the architectural design of the existing or proposed main dwelling.

Attached Accessory Dwelling Unit

  • Maximum of two stories or 25 feet

  • Cannot exceed 50% of the existing main dwelling unit

  • ADU shall match the architectural design of the existing or proposed main dwelling

Setbacks for your ADU

ADUs shall adhere to the state's setbacks of four feet from the side and rear yard and must remain 6 feet from the existing main dwelling. Existing accessory structures and single-family homes that are converted into ADUs are exempt from meeting the required setbacks however, any expansion shall meet the four-foot side and rear yard setback, as pursuant to Government Code Section 65852.2.

Parking for Tenant

All new ADUs will be required to provide one additional parking space, cover, or uncovered if the proposed ADU is not within a one-half (.5) mile radius of public transit station (bus stops included). However, for accessory structures or a portion of the existing residence that is converted into an ADU, no additional parking is required. An ADU cannot have direct access to a garage if the proposed or existing garage has less than three spaces.

Junior ADU Development Standards

Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs) are very small living units created within the existing main dwelling. The JADU must have a living/sleeping area, and a kitchen or kitchenette (i.e., stove or hotplate, refrigerator, and sink). A bathroom is not required, however, if a bathroom is not provided, the JADU shall have direct access into the existing main dwelling unit. A JADU cannot exceed a total of 500 square feet and any expansion of the existing main dwelling to accommodate the JADU shall not exceed 150 square feet.

Setbacks

JADUs shall adhere to the state's setbacks of four feet from the side and rear yard. Existing single-family homes that are converted into JADUs are exempt from meeting the required setbacks as pursuant to Government Code Section 65852.2.

Parking

Parking is not required for JADUs, however, an ADU cannot have direct access to a garage if the proposed or existing garage has less than three spaces.
