Accessory Dwelling Units

In 2023 South Orange Village passed regulations allowing Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) meeting certain conditions. See below for the ordinance, related documents and additional information. 

What is an ADU?  A self-contained portion of a principal, one-family dwelling, two-family dwelling, or an accessory structure, used as a secondary housing unit independent of the primary dwelling unit, that can only be used as a residence for occupancy by one family/housekeeping unit for 90 days or greater, on the same lot as a one or two-family dwelling where the owner lives on site, that is smaller in size and height than the principal building on the lot that serves as a dwelling unit.
