Please provide your input on Accessory Dwelling Units in the City of Durango.
The City of Durango legalized Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) in the Land Use and Development Code (LUDC) following an extensive public process in 2014. Since this time, the code has been updated to allow ADUs in nearly all residential zones. Nearly 150 legal ADUs exist in the city today. The majority of these were constructed prior to the 2014 code changes. Fewer than 50 new ADUs have been built in the last eight years.
In the face of a significant housing shortage in our community, city staff are interested in taking a second look at the standards regulating ADUs. This survey is an attempt to gauge the knowledge about the ADU Program, as well as to identify what barriers may exist in the creation of new ADUs in the community. The city is seeking your input to help shape how we might revise the LUDC for local property owners to better utilize their property and create housing options in convenient locations already served by City services.
