The Mill Valley City Council has assembled a Housing Advisory Committee (HAC) to address on-going concerns about affordable housing in Mill Valley, and as a means of advancing various General Plan programs aimed at encouraging the continued diversity of housing and income levels in the City.
Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are an important and well respected piece of Mill Valley’s smaller scale, affordable housing stock. The proposed modifications to ADU regulations (contained the Mill Valley Municipal Code section 20.90) incorporate direction received from City Council and Planning Commission to establish Junior ADU regulations and create additional regulations, where possible, to ensure that ADUs are maintained as truly separate, rentable units and used for the intended purpose of a dwelling unit.
