The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to adopt a resolution to delegate authority to the Agency Director to temporarily waive building and planning fees for junior accessory dwelling units for approximately 12 months. The fee waiver is recommended to be capped at $1,500 for each permit received during that time frame. The recent North Bay wildfires resulted in the loss of thousands of homes, exacerbating the region's housing shortage. Staff recommends that the County assist in mitigating the impact of increased demand for housing by encouraging and facilitating the creation of junior accessory dwelling units (room rentals within existing residences). Such units usually a small food preparation area and separate entrance/exit.
The Board adopted the resolution.
