Accessory Dwelling Unit Text Amendments

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are currently allowed in Lincoln under limited circumstances. The City Council has directed the Planning Department to explore the idea of a Zoning Ordinance amendment that would provide more options for ADUs in residential districts throughout the city. A working group of neighborhood representatives, architects, and homebuilders has been assembled to assist with the update process. The text represents options for public discussion and is not a proposal by the working group or Planning Department. The working group will further examine the issue once public input is collected. A text amendment proposal may move forward to the Planning Commission in late Spring.
