City of Folsom Hosting Workshop and Meeting on ADUs (aka ‘granny flats’)

granny flat

ADUs, also known as ‘granny flats’ or ‘second units’ have become hot-button issues in communities around the country.

Those in favor cite the need for additional housing, the ability for home owners to generate income, and the ability to keep extended family together.

Those opposed usually cite issues of parking, crowding, noise and  nuisance issues that come with using them as vacation rentals.

So, the City of Folsom’s Community Development Department will be hosting a public workshop on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 to discuss standards for these accessory dwelling units.

In addition, staff will be presenting the results of the workshop and discussing next steps on the ADU Ordinance with the Historic District Commission on February 19.
