City of Pasadena to Hold ADU Virtual Community Workshop This Thursday

PASADENA, Calif.—The City of Pasadena has received funding from the Southern California Association of Governments (SCAG) to assess the City’s Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) permitting processes to identify where improvements can be made. The first of two community workshops will be held on Thursday, May 19, 6-7:30 p.m. via Zoom. Staff will share key findings from the project’s initial technical work, information on how ADUs can serve state and local housing needs, and regulations governing ADUs. Community members are encouraged to share their feedback to help achieve the best results from this grant-funded project.
