Trending: Accessory Dwelling Units within the SCAG Region

Toolbox Tuesday


Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are a growing and influential option for addressing the region’s critical housing needs. 6th cycle Housing element updates are expected to include estimates of ADU development potential, fewer barriers to their development and programs incentivizing ADUs, including rental ADUs affordable to low- and moderate-income households. SCAG’s Housing Element Parcel (HELPR) tool can help identify local land use and site opportunities to meet these needs.

At the next Toolbox Tuesday, learn more about HELPR 2.0, the newest version of the tool with improved visualization capabilities, jurisdictional dashboards of housing statistics and new data and filtering capabilities based on ADU site dimensions determined by state law.
