One of the guiding values of the Master Plan is “Anyone, no matter what age or income, can find a place to call home in Ypsilanti.” To help increase housing options in the City, the drafted Master Plan Update recommends considering new opportunities for accessory dwelling units. Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are dwelling units that can be constructed or occupied on a property in addition to the existing dwelling structure. ADUs are a low-impact way to increase housing, and they often provide housing to young adults, elderly, or low-to-moderate income residents. The drafted Master Plan Update recommends ADUs be expanded to more zoning districts while keeping in mind regulations such as size, height, green space, and parking.
