The neighborhood association, Friends of Hyde Park, is holding an online vote regarding accessory dwelling units (ADU) – also known as garage apartments or secondary apartments. The Austin City Council is holding a public hearing to discuss relaxing the regulations required to build ADUs and we feel that it’s important for Hyde Park to be represented at this meeting. The voting results will be sent to the city council and considered in their decision about this issue.

Text of what Friends of Hyde Park will be voting on:
“In order to increase housing options for renters and provide more flexibility for property owners, I support easing restrictions on accessory dwelling units (granny flats, secondary apartments, garage apartments).”
