Municipal Code Amendments

Municipal Code Updates for
Accessory Dwelling Units


The City of Rohnert Park has updated regulations that apply to Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Units (JADUs) to comply with recent changes to State requirements. Also called “second units” or “granny units,” ADUs and JADUs allow for existing homes to be expanded to provide additional housing opportunities. The City is experiencing an increased interest from homeowners to create ADUs and JADUs and the proposed regulatory changes should help make them easier to build.

On August 25, 2020, the City Council held a public hearing and adopted an ordinance amending the City's code regarding Accessory Dwelling Units to incorporate new State laws. Click here to view the Ordinance.
