Sheridan’s City Council approved ordinance 10-2021 on November 8th, 2021 after two years of discussion with Sheridan residents, Planning Commission and City staff. The final ordinance can be found below:
Accessory Dwelling Units, or ADUs, are an additional, self-contained housing unit that is secondary to the main residence on a single-family lot. One of the key benefits of ADUs is their ability to blend into existing neighborhoods with minimal impact to the overall “look” and “feel” of established residential areas. Many cities have used ADUs to address housing shortages and affordability in areas with predominately single-family land uses without significantly changing the character of these neighborhoods.
