No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a hearing to consider an urgency ordinance amending Marin County’s regulations governing Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs), and determining the ordinance to be exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Board has been working to address a severe housing shortage for lower-income residents in one of the country’s most expensive regions in which to live. State law renders local ADU ordinances null and void that do not meet the requirements of a new state law. To maintain local regulation of ADUs and JADUs in unincorporated Marin, staff recommends that the Board adopt the urgency ordinance to regulate permitting, placement, and construction of the units.
The Board conducted the hearing and approved the urgency ordinance about regulations for ADUs and JADUs.
