Item No. 5 - Ordinance amending laws regarding ADU's

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are smaller, independent residential dwelling units located on the same property as a single-unit home, and can be attached or detached from the main house. ADUs have been identified as one component of the “missing middle” which helps increase housing options in Wheat Ridge. This ordinance proposes to legalize ADUs as an accessory use to single-unit homes, while providing flexibility for homeowners in terms of design, location, and development standards. This ordinance is a response to specific policy direction from City Council based on staff presentations, public feedback, and lessons learned from peer communities.
This meeting will be conducted as a virtual meeting and in-person in City Council Chambers (7500 W. 29th Avenue) if allowed to meet in person on that date per COVID-19 restrictions.  Provide public comment here on Wheat Ridge Speaks until noon on June 27, 2022 by selecting the agenda item on which you want to comment.  Refer to the meeting agenda and "how to" document to learn more about participating in the live meeting or to view the meeting live or later.
