On January 1, 2020, new State laws came into effect that made our Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) ordinance ineffective. We’ve prepared a Draft ADU ordinance for the City of San Rafael that will make it easier to develop an ADU and streamline the permit review process, which will further encourage and facilitate ADU start-ups as a source of affordable housing.
Whether you have an ADU or plan to have one in the future – WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK.
Review the draft ordinance and send us your comments and questions. We'll be taking the draft ordinance to the Planning Commission on March 23, 2021 for it's first round of reviews!
