Accessory Dwelling Unit Fair Will Be Held on June 26 at JCCSF

On June 26, 2017, the San Francisco Apartment Association (SFAA) will be hosting an Accessory Dwelling Unit Fair at 6:00 pm at the Jewish Community Center, 3200 California Street. The fair is free and open to the public and will feature a panel of speakers from the Department of Building Inspection, the Planning Department, and other city agencies to discuss the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) planning and permitting process. The fair will also feature a number of vendors and lenders to discuss opportunities to create ADUs in buildings citywide, as well as answer individual questions and how you can best navigate what can be a confusing process between city departments. The citywide Accessory Dwelling Unit law has been immensely popular since its inception in 2016 and presents a unique opportunity for building owners to construct new, additional units in their buildings. ADUs can also be constructed during mandatory or voluntary seismic retrofit work and can be built at a relatively low cost in order to help leverage the costs associated with the earthquake retrofit. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about this exciting program!
