St. Lucie County Hosts Workshop on Accessory Dwelling Units/Tiny Homes Feb. 17

 

  1. LUCIE COUNTY – St. Lucie County’s Planning and Development Services staff invites the public to attend a workshop about Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) to be held during the Planning and Zoning Commission meeting on Thursday, Feb. 17 at 6 p.m. in the Commission Chambers on the third floor of the Roger Poitras Building at 2300 Virginia Avenue, Fort Pierce.

This workshop will also be available on-demand on the county website and streamed live on Facebook for those unable to attend in-person.

Accessory Dwelling Units, also known as granny flats or tiny houses, are used in communities to provide flexibility to families to accommodate aging parents or transitioning children into adulthood.

ADUs can also provide homeowners another means of income, when faced with rising homeownership costs, by renting out these backyard units to those who need a small space and affordable rent. ADUs can be an efficient way to address the need for affordable housing for young people entering the workforce, retirees, and others, overseen by the homeowner and integrated into established neighborhoods.

Among the issues to consider are how to address the need for additional parking, whether there are areas that are not appropriate for Accessory Dwelling Units and consider any other adverse impacts from this potential new use.

This is a public workshop and no registration is necessary to attend. St. Lucie County staff is interested in our residents’ feedback, please take a survey about Accessory Dwelling Units at the following link:  https://stluciecounty.formstack.com/forms/accessory_dwelling_units.
