Tonight! Open House on Granny Flats

Whoops! In the excitement of the past week, missed the Open House tonight on "granny flats."

From the City:
Join us for an open house Tuesday, November 29 at the Salem Public Library to talk about accessory dwelling units (ADUs), commonly known as mother-in-law apartments. The City of Salem is considering allowing these smaller housing units in the city as a way to expand housing choices in Salem.

We want to know how you think ADUs should be regulated in Salem. Your input will be used to help develop a recommendation for allowing ADUs in the community.

Public Open House
Date: Tuesday, November 29, 2016
Time: 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Place: Salem Public Library, Anderson Rooms
585 Liberty Street SE, Salem, OR
Here's the presentation from the meeting earlier in November and the notes from that meeting.

(Maybe there will be more to say later.)

Update, December 2nd

Notes on Parking from Open House
The meeting notes are now posted, and as a reader points out below, there was meaningful sentiment against requiring additional off-street parking.

Me too! I sure hope someone who attended will report here!

The turnout was great for a pretty wonky subject. My impression was that most attendees supported flexible regulations for ADUs. Of particular interest to this blog, there was wide support for no additional parking requirements.

Updated with clip and link to meeting notes. As anon says, it seems turnout was more than ok!
