VIDEO. Accessory Dwelling Unit State Law, as of January 1st, 2020, now supercedes the City of Half Moon Bay’s ADU law.
The new ADU state law is considered a “sea change”, with four new ADU categories.
Owner occupancy restrictions are no longer in place. This sunsets in 2025.
This is an advantage for LLC investors, like Black Rock, according to City Council person, Debbie Ruddock, who sees this as dangerous change for the quaint character of Half Moon Bay.
Homeowner Association can no longer disallow ADUs.
The State also changed minimum size and setback requirements.
State has shortened ADU processing requirement from 120 days to 60 days.
