ORDINANCE AMENDMENT - Accessory Dwelling Units
An Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) is a second dwelling unit on a single family lot that has its own eating, sleeping, and sanitation facilities. Rapid City’s Comprehensive Plan recommends that ADU’s be allowed in residential neighborhoods in conjunction with clear standards to guide size, occupancy limitations, etc. as a way to diversity the mix of housing in our community. The following documents provide more information about the policy that is being developed to introduce new ADU’s, and acknowledge existing ADU’s, in Rapid City.
