The City of Flagstaff might be looking at ways to encourage the construction of new units on existing sections of property.
Flagstaff City Council last week moved forward with potential changes to the provisions within city code that regulate accessory dwelling units.
Sometimes called a granny flat, accessory units are a second small home or apartment built as part of an existing property. In that way, multiple households may be occupying a single parcel of land.
Overall, the potential changes make it easier to add an accessory dwelling unit to a property, changing the residency requirement and lowering certain setbacks for such units.
