Encinitas is offering homeowners a money-saving solution for building granny flats on their properties, hoping that these units will help meet the city’s housing goals.
The City of Encinitas created the Permit-Ready ADU (PRADU) program that will offer property owners pre-approved building plans for granny flats.
The city said this will reduce pre-construction costs, create expedited building permits and waive all city development fees.
This comes after the San Diego Board of Supervisors voted to waive permit and development fees for granny flats countywide earlier this month.
Encinitas is working with two local architects to offer homeowners a variety of pre-approved building plans.
PRADU is estimated to save homeowners up to $18,000. The city said it will have the pre-approved plans available at the Development Services Department’s front counter.
