This is a public hearing in front of the Burlington Planning Commission and the City Council Ordinance Committee to hear comments on proposed amendments to the City of Burlington’s Comprehensive Development Ordinance (CDO), including an amendment that would allow more Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU's).
The purpose of this zoning amendment is to encourage the creation of ADU’s throughout the city to support homeowners as they age in place, provide flexible options to help owners afford and better utilize available space within their homes, and to provide additional affordable housing options within existing neighborhoods. This amendment modifies applicable ADU and other city-wide general standards including: enabling ADU’s as a permitted use in all zoning districts, creating an alternative maximum unit size and lot coverage waiver process, and eliminating the parking requirement and limitation on stacked parking.
