Change Code Requirements for ADU in San Mateo

This petition made change with 118 supporters!

The affordable housing crisis in San Mateo has hit an all time high. Do you have a relative, friend, coworker who has had to leave San Mateo due to the inability to afford rent? I know I have. The city of San Mateo is asking residents to add ADU's (Accessory Dwelling Units) to there property however the codes that the city of San Mateo have in place make it next to impossible for residents to add ADU's that are separate from the primary dwelling. I propose that the code be changed so that single family one car garage dwellings are able to add an ADU without meeting the current code that the primary dwelling have a 2 car garage. A very high majority of homes in San Mateo only have a single car garage and most of these homes don't even use the garage for parking. This change would allow for more ADU's and more affordable housing for those who are being priced out of the San Mateo Rental market as well as allow homeowners to make additional income now and into retirement.
