SECOND UNIT AMNESTY PERMIT PROGRAM

The 2nd Unit Amnesty Permit Program makes it easier for the owners of unpermitted second dwelling units to bring them into compliance with building and zoning codes. Once a property has been issued final inspection approval under the program, the city will consider the second dwelling unit legal. City Council has extended the program. Apply before December 24, 2013.
