Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are secondary 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.
Pardon the inconvenience, the ADU guides are being updated to reflect new state ADU laws.
ATTENTION ADU PROPERTY OWNERS!
