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 September 6, 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.  
At the public hearing on January 3, 2017, Planning Commission approved Resolution 17-01, recommending that the City Council approve amendments to the Zoning Code regulations for accessory dwelling units.
