Housing is a human right. There isn't enough affordable housing in this city and this is a great way to increase the stock. Plus all the benefits to homeowners, the economy, and multi generational families living together. Let's make this easy decision!

Properly regulated to avoid over densification and low quality of life for residents, it will add thousands of affordable housing options at a lower cost than new developments and allow elderly residential property owners to cope with increasing property taxes, isolation and security issues.

Its a great idea because it utilizes space we can use. Creates more housing and allows families to stay together and save or earn extra income. They do it in other states like Arizona, why not Chicago?!

ADUs have the potential to allow more diverse neighborhood and create more affordable living spaces. It also allows owners to earn extra income to maintain their buildings and to continue to live in expensive neighborhoods. Diversity is a goal!

I believe in this as a viable option for more affordable housing in the city of Chicago. Times have changed, so too should our zoning codes.

ADU’s (accessory dwelling units) increase affordable housing, create income streams for homeowners, facilitate aging in place, and increase density and economic development in their neighborhoods.
