ADU proposal

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are smaller, secondary independent housekeeping establishments located on the same lot as a principal dwelling. ADUs are independently habitable and provide the basic requirements of shelter, heating, cooking, and sanitation. 

The Division of Planning has put forth a proposal that would allow these small dwelling units of up to 800 square feet on all urban, single-family residential lots in Lexington. The details of the proposal and the ADU process can be found in the resources below.
