New Evanston ADU Zoning Code
To address the cost of housing in our community, the City of Evanston’s Plan Commission started discussions on a more comprehensive accessory dwelling unit (ADU) code on July 8th (meeting packet here).
This ordinance would legalize “attached” ADUs (e.g. basement conversions and interior suites) and support the development of accessible, ground-level ADUs for aging residents. Read more from Evanston Now in this article.
The next Plan Commission meeting will be on Wednesday, August 12th at 7:00PM Central Time. Please consider signing up to provide public comments if you want these affordable housing policies to move forward!
