Cedillo and Senator Wieckowski Highlight ADU Bill Enactment
Passage of SB 1069 reduces barriers to building ADUs in California

Los Angeles–Councilmember Gil Cedillo welcomes Senator Bob Wieckowski to Los Angeles to highlight the passage and enactment of SB 1069—Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). The most extensive bill on accessory dwelling units to be signed in almost 15 years, SB 1069 reduces significant barriers to building ADUs, often referred to as granny flats, helping to alleviate the housing crisis that exists statewide.

SB 1069 eases regulatory burdens by eliminating excessive sprinkler requirements, providing several exceptions to parking restrictions, requiring ministerial approval for conversion of an existing structure to an ADU, reducing or eliminating water and sewage hook-up fees, and increasing the maximum size of an ADU.
