Can I build an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) or junior accessory dwelling unit (JADU)?

Many residential properties are eligible to construct an ADU and/or JADU. Eligibility depends on the property's zoning. Construction of an ADU or JADU is subject to the regulations found in the Zoning and Development Code. Refer to the ADU information sheet for an overview of the regulations.
