State lawmakers just passed a bill requiring cities to permit accessory dwelling units. I have not read the final bill but cities will not be required to have at least 25 percent of single-family dwellings the option to have an accessory apartment. This was the last I read so it could have changed. I'm sure there are standards tied to the bill and will hear the final in the local APA legislative download meeting. Also, we cannot tie architectural restrictions to certain types of residential units. I believe apartments still can have standards. If we want restrictions they need to be in the form of a development agreement. I do not like zoning by DA as they get lost over the years and people leave and institutional knowledge follows them out the door.
