The ADU ordinance amendments pass City Council!

After a City Council meeting that ran until nearly 2 in the morning (!), the accessory dwelling unit (ADU) ordinance amendments passed with an 8-3 vote. This is a wonderful step toward affordability in the City of Ann Arbor. We’re happy that A2 is following the lead of Grand Rapids, Traverse City, and other cities across the country. Read more about the ordinance amendments here.


This map shows the zoning districts where homeowners could build accessory dwelling units. Yellow = R1 (single-family) and purple = R2A (duplex) zoning districts. Minimum lot size and other restrictions will determine where ADUs will be able to be built.
