City to host Aldermanic District meetings to discuss accessory dwelling units
SAVANNAH (April 15) – To address the need for additional housing in our community, the City of Savannah will host a series of Aldermanic District meetings to discuss the current standards and identify ways to allow more flexibility for accessory dwelling units. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) 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 City will host additional community-wide meetings and release a community survey for feedback on ADU utilization as the process continues.
