Detached Accessory Dwelling Units

The City is considering potential changes to the City’s Zoning Code regulations pertaining to Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (DADU’s).  DADU’s are a separate dwelling unit located on the same lot as a principal single family dwelling.  DADU’s are not currently permitted in single family residential zones in Everett.

The City's Planning Commission agreed to initiate consideration of a code amendment to allow DADU’s in single family zones.  Planning Commission workshops were held on October 4 and November 1 , 2016 to hear from the public, and discuss potential changes to the Zoning Code regulations.   City Council held a briefing on October 26, 2016.  If you would like to be notified of future meetings, please contact us at planning@everettwa.gov.    

Persons with questions should contact Allan Giffen, Planning Director, at 425 257-8731.
