The Town is seeking information that will help our community fulfill its obligations to the State as part of the Regional Housing Needs Analysis (RHNA) requirements. The Town’s Housing Element promotes the use of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) as one of the primary means of fulfilling our RHNA obligations. We believe that ADUs can help address regional housing needs and provide an excellent solution for the Town by maintaining the Town’s character as a single-family home community. ADUs can offer a practical solution for multi-generational families seeking additional living space; can provide an opportunity for homeowners to generate rental income; or can be used as a shared family or caretaker space at no cost. We believe that there are these and other habitation scenarios that exist today that will help us show the State that ADUs are a viable solution for the Town.
But we need your help in gathering essential data. In 2022, we launched an online survey to gauge the willingness of the community to embrace the ADU strategy and build or offer ADUs for rent. The response and support from the community was very positive. Now, we need to determine if there are existing ADUs or Junior ADUs presently in use; and, if so, are they rented and at what rate? We need this data to respond to the State’s requirements and to plan accordingly for future years. Please take a moment to fill out the below information. The Town intends to use the data statistically to create a picture and report to HCD. If you do not have an ADU or JADU on your property, please respond with NO and Not Applicable to the remainder. Should you have any questions, please email the City Manager, George Rodericks at email@example.com
