Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) "Granny Units" Survey Your voice matters!!
The City of Monterey is updating Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) rules to integrate new state laws with our City Code. We're taking this opportunity to present concepts to the City Council that goes beyond minimum state requirements in order to:
- Streamline for ease of use and review
- Adapt ADU rules to our unique situations in Monterey
- Expand development standards to reflect community requests
Ideas presented in this survey are in response to multiple inquiries and requests from Monterey residents regarding ADUs. Your feedback can help the City understand community goals and concerns. Please take a minute to answer the following questions in preparation for a City Council Work-session, currently planned for Tuesday, September 1.
Guidance from that meeting will be shared with the Planning Commission for review of proposed code language.
