Granny flats ordinance clears Council


The City Council approved Council Member Lisa Bender’s “granny flat” ordinance Friday — a measure that will allow accessory dwelling units on city lots with single or two-family homes.

The dwellings can be self-contained units within an existing home or a separate structure on the lot.

The goal is to provide more housing options while still preserving a neighborhood’s character.

Before passage of the ordinance, accessory dwelling units were only allowed in a portion of the Phillips community.
