On May 25, 2017, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors approved Phase I of the Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance. The Phase I amendment, which brought the County’s Land Use Ordinance into compliance with California State Code Section 65852.2 regarding Accessory Dwelling Units, eliminated County requirements for road surfacing and owner-occupancy for secondary dwellings.
The Board of Supervisors has directed staff to initiate Phase II of an Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance to further incentive and remove unnecessary barriers to their development. As part of this effort, the County will review existing restrictions and limitations on secondary dwellings throughout the unincorporated areas of the County.
