Seattle DCI: Pre-Approved DADU Plans Forum

The City of Seattle is considering developing a program to offer pre-approved plans for DADUs. While no firm proposal exists, architects are being asked to weigh in with their thoughts and suggestions.

The City of Seattle has expressed interest in developing sets of pre-approved plans for Detached Accessory Dwelling Units (DADUs) to make them less expensive and quicker to build. Recently, Mayor Jenny Durkan issued a press release touting the idea. At this Forum, Seattle’s Office of Planning and Community Development and its Department of Construction & Inspections will present the City’s current work on ADUs/DADUs and seek input from attendees on how such a program might work and what concerns architects have related to stock plans for DADUs. In addition, attendees will have the opportunity to present their own ideas on how to best encourage DADU development.
