Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs), sometimes called “granny units” or “second units,” are housing units that can be attached or detached accessory structures associated with single or multifamily dwellings. ADUs are part of the solution to Santa Cruz County’s critical housing shortage and high housing costs.
