Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)

Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) can go a long way to create innovative new housing in Oxnard. Why did the Oxnard City Council and Community Development Department make ADUs very hard to create in Oxnard?

Oxnard limits the implementation of Accessory Dwelling Units because the agreement between the City Council and the Community Development Department sets the standard at a restrictive 600sf min instead of the much more incentivizing 400sf min. Oxnard Renaissance asks you to go to public comment during a City Council meeting and ask the council why is voted to make AUD’s in Oxnard difficult (600sf) instead of easy (400sf)?
