Thwarting Urban Sprawl in Stillwater with ADUs
Towns throughout the country are looking for alternatives to existing zoning laws that will allow more "Accessory Dwelling Units” (ADUs) to be built, increasing housing options and walkability and decreasing urban sprawl. Roger Tomten, Sustainable Stillwater MN chairman, and Todd Moss, a Stillwater resident, have drafted a Zoning Text Amendment to extend the construction of ADUs into other zoning districts in Stillwater. Language is also proposed to allow ADUs on smaller lots and to modify off-street parking requirements to make the ADU option more accessible to residents. The proposed amendments will be presented on Zoom to the City Planning Commission on Thursday, April 28th.
