[ARCHIVED] Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance: Second reading and possible action by the Town Council 5/19/20

Favorite Town Hall

On Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at 6:30 pm (via videoconference only), the Town Council will conduct a second reading and possibly adopt proposed zoning ordinance amendments related to Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) and Junior Accessory Dwelling Unit (JADU) regulations (Chapter 18.18-Special Purpose Overlay Districts and Chapter 18.31-Accessory Dwelling Units of the Corte Madera Municipal Code). Adoption of the ordinance would 1) make ADUs converted from existing floor space (i.e. basements, garages, and accessory structures), and all JADUs, subject to the existing ADU capacity limitations in the Christmas Tree Hill Overlay District, 2) provide an option for discretionary review to allow non-clerestory windows in ADUs, and 3) make non-substantive clean-up changes and clarifications to Chapter 18.31. The meeting agenda and link to the staff report and proposed ordinance can be accessed here (refer to Item 6A). Additional information regarding prior meetings, prior staff reports and presentations can be found on the Town’s webpage for this project. If you have any questions, please contact the project planner: Martha Battaglia, Senior Planner, at or call 415-927-5064.

Please note that the meeting will be videoconferenced using GoToWebinar.  For more information on how to register to watch the meeting, how to use the call-in option, and how to submit public comment remotely, click here.  All attendees are encouraged to submit any written public comments for the Council before or during the meeting to:
