Accessory Structures Project

The Accessory Structures Zoning Code Update project will revise the Zoning Code for accessory structures. The project focuses on detached residential structures such as garages, storage sheds, home offices and accessory dwelling units (ADUs) as well as decks, trellises, ADA ramps and mechanical equipment. The new regulations will streamline regulations by emphasizing form (setbacks, height and bulk) over function (how the accessory structure is used) while continuing to address impacts on neighboring properties.
