Agenda Item Summary:
The proposed Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) Ordinance was created in response to the City’s goal of diversifying options for housing, and promoting more affordable housing solutions in Rapid City. The Comprehensive Plan identifies multiple recommendations related to allowing ADU’s. ADU’s are a tool to introduce small housing units in existing or new neighborhoods, while maintaining the character of the neighborhood. This ordinance creates opportunities for the development of new units, as well as creating a path for existing ADU’s to operate within the legal parameters of the Rapid City Municipal Code.
