Proposed Regulations

The City of Auburn Planning Department is working on regulations to add a new type of housing designation to the Zoning Ordinance. The proposed Academic Detached Dwelling Unit (ADDU) would provide regulations for freestanding structures intended to be used by no more than five residents of academic institutions. The typical unit configuration includes common space and private bedrooms, each with a dedicated bathroom. The regulations outline where such structures would be permitted by right versus conditionally allowed.

You can find a draft ordinance below along with a form for your input.
