Big House, Little House, Back House…ADU?
Accessory Dwelling Units are in the news! Though hardly a new idea to planners and builders alike, ADUs are developing a new following as their popularity increases and a new market for them as formed. Baby boomers are trying to find a place for their own aging parents to live (before they themselves need such a place too) and millennials are seeking a place they can afford that’s close to where they work. What are the practical implications for planners as they seek to adjust their local zoning ordinances to accommodate this demand? Learn from the experience of New Hampshire, which recently adopted legislation requiring municipalities to allow ADUs. Ben Frost, AICP was one of the principal authors of this legislation. As legal counsel at New Hampshire Housing, Ben is an advocate for practical, flexible housing policy.
