The property is zoned FR-3/12,000, Foothills Residential District, where ADUs must be processed as a conditional use.
About the Project
What is an Accessory Dwelling Unit?
An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) is a complete secondary residential unit that can be added to a single-family residential lot. ADUs can be attached to or part of the primary residence or be detached as a separate building in a backyard or a garage conversion. An ADU provides completely separate living space including a kitchen, bathroom, and its own entryway.
Where is the Project Located?
The proposed accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) will be located in the rear, northwest corner of the property located at 2721 E 2100 South, on the block between Wasatch Drive and Scenic Drive.
Why is this request going through a planning process?
Accessory dwelling units (ADUs) require conditional use approval (by the Planning Commission) in the FR-3/12,000 Foothills Residential District. This means that because of their unique characteristics and potential impacts on surrounding neighbors, ADUs may require certain conditions that mitigate or eliminate their negative impacts. Unless it is impossible to apply conditions to mitigate any negative impacts, conditional uses (like ADUs) must be approved by the Planning Commission.
