Additional Dwelling Unit (ADUs)

ADUs are built as smaller residences on the same property as a primary single-family residence but still provide complete and independent living facilities for one or more persons. ADUs may be built within the existing structure of the primary residence, which could include converting garage space, converting or expanding existing living space, or building out a smaller area of existing living space as a separate unit (called a Junior ADU). For more information on ADUs, please see the City of Soledad ADU Handbook below.
