Summary of Proposal: The City of Wilsonville currently allows small Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) for most single family homes on their own lot. The City’s Development Code also contains a numeric limitation on ADUs for the Canyon Creek Meadows Subdivision. The proposal modifies the City’s Development Code to ensure conformance with new state statutes adopted in 2017 in Senate Bill 1051. This includes allowing ADUs for detached dwelling units even if there are multiple detached dwelling units on a lot, removing any numeric limitations beyond allowing one ADU per eligible dwelling unit, and removing ADU design standards beyond certain neighborhood/zone specific objective standards applicable to homes and other accessory structures. In addition, the proposal removes potential common barriers to ADU development by increasing allowed lot coverage for ADUs and prohibiting future subdivisions from placing certain limitations on ADUs. Lastly, the proposal makes a number of additional amendments to increase clarity and functionality for regulations related to ADUs and other housing including, but not limited to, clarifying regulations on short-term rentals, clarifying square footage limitations and parking requirements for ADUs, and clarifying definitions of different types of dwelling units.
