Notice of Land Use Code Amendments


Accessory Dwelling Units Environmental Impact Statement

The City of Seattle is proposing to change regulations in the Land Use Code to remove barriers to the creation of accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in single-family zones. ADUs include backyard cottages, known as Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (DADUs), and in-law apartments, known as Attached Accessory Dwelling Units (AADUs). The proposal involves allowing two ADUs on one lot, removing the existing off-street parking and owner-occupancy requirements, and changing some development standards that regulate the size and location of detached ADUs.
