12/19/2015 – Norwood Young America, MN is the latest metro-area city to consider so-called granny flats to accommodate its aging community.
The City Council discussed zoning for accessory dwelling units, or ADUs, during a Planning Commission meeting Tuesday. ADUs are small secondary housing units built on lots that already have a house.
City Council members have proposed offering the option of ADUs to aging residents who want to stay in the community, where they can be close to family.
The proposal could be approved early next year.
