WEBINAR- Accessory Dwelling Units Providing Affordable Housing
September 17, 2019 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
In a state dominated by single-family units, many people struggle to find suitable living arrangements. This webinar offers information about an affordable housing approach supported by the Florida Legislature that few local jurisdictions are implementing. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a residential unit that is secondary to the primary residence of the homeowner and can be a powerful smart growth tool for providing affordable rental housing. ADUs are also beneficial to elderly and disabled populations in which a caregiver or family members can reside in close proximity to persons in need of care. The presenters will explain how to develop ADUs as infill units where there is existing infrastructure to make greater use of already developed land. Alternative housing models including tiny homes and repurposed shipping containers will be included.
