Welcome to the second Housing Element Update survey (the first survey can be found here if you have not taken it yet!).

 

This survey focuses on the topic of Accessory Dwelling Units, also knowns as "ADUs".  In order to meet state requirements, the City of Beverly Hills must provide zoning that promotes the development of 3,104 new housing units over the next 8-year Housing Element Cycle (from 2021-2029).  Since the City is anticipating that a large number of these units will be ADUs, we would like your input on ADU regulations and how the City may best encourage the construction of more ADUs.
