City of Savannah releases community-wide accessory dwelling unit survey
SAVANNAH (August 22) – A community-wide survey is now available to gather feedback about the possible utilization and revision of standards for accessory dwelling units (ADU) in the City to address additional housing needs. The City’s current zoning ordinance provides regulations for ADUs to include lot coverage, setback, and lot size requirements. The survey questions will help the City obtain feedback about the community’s preference for ADUs in their neighborhoods.
An accessory dwelling unit is a structure used as an individual residential unit located on the same lot as the principal dwelling. They may be referred to as carriage houses, in-law units, or secondary dwelling units. The survey can be found by visiting savannahga.gov/ADUsurvey and the deadline to complete the survey is Friday, September 9.
For more information on the City’s progress with this initiative, please visit savannahga.gov/ADU. For more information or if you are unable to access the survey, contact the City’s Planning and Urban Design Office at 912-651-3108 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
