On Monday, February 27, 2023, at 6:00 p.m., the Goleta Planning Commission will conduct a public hearing to consider recommending to City Council adoption of an Ordinance to amend Title 17 (Zoning) of the Goleta Municipal Code (GMC) related to Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). The meeting will be held in-person in City Council Chambers (130 Cremona Drive) and via the Zoom platform. The public may also view the meeting on Goleta TV Channel 19 and/or online at www.cityofgoleta.org/meetings-agendas.
Due to changes in State law (Senate Bill 897 of 2022), the proposed Ordinance includes a new set of citywide ADU and Junior ADU (JADU) standards that will fully comply with the changes in State law and make other minor revisions to the City’s previous ADU regulations. Changes to the City’s permanent ADU regulations include, but are not limited to:
- ADU heights and front setbacks
- Changes to the processing and denial of ADUs
- JADU locations, configurations, and definition
Many of the proposed revisions were included in Urgency Ordinance No. 22-16U, which was adopted by City Council on December 20, 2022. The new ADU regulations in the proposed Ordinance would replace the regulations in Urgency Ordinance No. 22-16U.
