Creative Solution to the Affordable Housing Crisis: ADUs
June 28, 2019
While there are many creative ways to address the affordable housing crisis, the development of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) is one that is quick to build, does not require a public subsidy, and can be integrated into existing neighborhoods practically seamlessly. Unfortunately, cities and local governments have erected great barriers to their development. In this episode of the Affordable Housing Podcast brought to you by Eden Housing, host Joanne Greene speaks to Senator Bob Wieckowski, a champion of affordable housing who represents California’s 10th Senate District. As Wieckowski brings to light, many barriers still need to be conquered in order to reflect the notion that ADUs accessorize the mother house and should not be treated as new developments.
