   What is an Accessory Dwelling Unit ( ADU ) ? 
    ( Adapted from www . planning . org/knowledgebase/accessorydwelling/
   An Accessory Dwelling Unit ( ADU ) is a smaller , independent residential dwelling unit located on the same lot as a stand - alone single - family home . ADUs go by different names such as accessory apartments , secondary suites , granny flats and many more .
   ADUs can take many different forms such as Detached , Attached , Attached ( above garage ) , Interior ( basement ) , Interior ( converted garage ) , or Interior ( upper floor )
   Internal , attached and detached ADUs can increase the affordability of housing ( for both homeowners and tenants ) .
   ADUs can also create a wider range of housing options within a community , enable seniors to stay near family as they age , and facilitate better use of the existing housing fabric in established neighborhoods .
   ADUs are a much more reasonable size for today’s smaller , childless households which now account for nearly two - thirds of all households in the United States .  
   Fewer resources are needed to build and maintain ADUs than traditional full - sized homes .  
   ADUs offer smaller , affordable homes in established neighborhoods without adding to an area’s suburban sprawl .
   Growth is more dispersed , incremental and manageable than other options such as apartment buildings .
   Zoning for Accessory Dwelling Units
   ADUs are most often permitted in one or more single - family zoning districts by right , subject to use - specific standards .  
   Criteria for acceptable ADUs include but are not limited to an owner - occupancy requirement , dimensional and design standards , off - street parking requirements , minimum lot sizes , limits on the number of occupants or bedrooms .
   Summary of Existing Regulations for ADUs in Cortez:
   Allowed in the R1 and RE zoning districts only by Conditional Use Permit ( public hearings required ) .
   Allowed only if the lot is 20% larger than the required minimum lot size .
   Can not increase existing living space by more than 20% ( 2 , 000 sq . ft . home = 400 sq . ft . ADU max )
   Property owner must live in the single - family home .
   2 additional parking spaces must be provided for the ADU .
