Phoenix changes laws on ADU's/Casitas
After a few years of work new casita/ADU laws and regulations were passed. Looks like they changed the depth of setbacks from your back and side walls (which is big IMO) and listed some specifics about how large the Casita can be depending on your lot and home size. But, it looks like it will be illegal to STR your casita/ADU
I am sure more details will be coming out soon.
I think this is a huge move overall. It allows investors to potentially get more bang for their buck and hopefully provide more affordable housing options for renters.
I also agree that the change of depth of setbacks is a big part of todays news as well.
I also think an underrated aspect of this is that it sill hopefully help AZ's water situation too. Running water to a Casita via an existing water line should save water compared to investors building and running utilities on vacant land.
