County to Offer Free, Pre-Approved Housing Plans


“It’s estimated that these plans alone, off the shelf, ready to go will save a property owner about $15,000, and if you add that to what the Board of Supervisors has already done in
waiving the County permit fees for these accessory dwelling units, that’s another
$15,000. So it’s a total savings of $30,000 right off the
top.” “This is a promising housing strategy for older adults as they can provide
multi-generational housing, a residence for a caregiver or serve as an extra
source of income. Granny flats also increase the stock of affordable housing
in our region and can provide more options for adult renters.” “If anybody’s ever done a building
project you know that planning and processing is a big cost so they’ve taken
the mystery out of that. These plans are very well thought-out and very useful. They’ve really made it really simple.”
