Recommendation: Maximize Safe Second Units. Minimize Displacement.
The East Palo Alto Accessory Dwelling Unit and Anti-Displacement Task Force finalized recommendations for the East Palo Alto City Council. The recommendations focus on actions to help homeowners streamline the rehabilitation of unpermitted second units, support tenants to remain house in their communities, and build an ecosystem of financing and workforce development strategies that can help low-income homeowners and workers to leverage this wealth-building opportunity. East Palo Alto is on the right track to identify solutions to making ADUs healthier!
