A workshop will be held in May so the public can learn more about proposed revisions to regulations that govern accessory buildings, apartments and dwelling units.

The workshop will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29 in the Mayor and Council chambers at City Hall, 111 Maryland Ave.

At a work session in October, the Mayor and Council directed staff to develop zoning text amendments that would provide more opportunities for accessory apartments and separate accessory dwelling units to be built on existing single-family lots.

In addition, after hearing feedback from the public, the Mayor and Council wanted to consider more flexibility in the size of accessory buildings (for example, garages) for single-family homes.

Two text amendments were presented at the Mayor and Council’s meeting on Monday, April 8: one addressing residential accessory buildings in residential, mixed-use transition (MXT) and historic district zones; and a companion item with proposed changes to the regulations for accessory apartments and accessory dwelling units.
