City of Coalinga Update to Accessory Dwelling Units Regulations
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The State legislature enacted accessory dwelling unit (ADU) legislation in 2017, 2018, and 2020 to reduce regulatory barriers and costs, streamline approval, and expand the potential capacity for ADUs in response to California's housing shortage. The State ADU laws preempt local ordinances and cities must implement these laws with limited exceptions. As a result, the City has prepared an ordinance in compliance with state law as it related to accessory dwelling units.
