accessory dwelling units (adus)

In one of the most competitive housing markets in the U.S., adding a secondary unit to an existing residential building has become easier than ever. The recent passage of Ordinance 0162-16, allows some buildings to add ADU's while waiving certain Planning Department restrictions.
