Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU): The comment deadline for environmental scoping comments on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for proposed changes to remove barriers to creating more ADUs and detached accessory dwelling units (DADUs) has been extended to November 16.
The proposed changes would eliminate the off-street parking requirement, allow both an ADU and DADU on one single-family lot, eliminate the owner occupancy requirement and increase the number of unrelated individuals on one single-family lot from 8 to 12 or 14.

Box 34025, Seattle, WA 98124-4025. The City’s proposal would eliminate the off-street parking requirement and the owner-occupancy requirement.
