Accessory Dwelling Units – Local Program, also known as Waiver ADUs

This program applies to single- and multi-family buildings and offers waivers, or administrative exceptions, to some Planning Code requirements. When these waivers are granted, a Costa-Hawkins Agreement may be required, which will subject the ADU(s) to rent control.
