Are Accessory Dwelling Units a tool for affordable housing?

City Council member Seema Singh tells Council during the final vote on Recode that Accessory Dwelling Units are a tool for affordable housing. Is this why Singh refuses to let established neighborhoods like West Hills and Sequoyah Hills opt out of Accessory Dwelling Units? Is the intent to flood neighborhoods with Section 8 grants for Accessory Dwelling Units? Listen where Singh says that forcing Accessory Dwelling Units on people who do not want them is a property rights issue for the few who do want them. Listen to where Executive Director of the Planning Commission Gerald Green explain that the bar to opt out of Accessory Dwelling Units will be set high. Accessory Dwelling Units violate setbacks. That is an actual violation of property rights.
