ADU Trouble

Livermore homeowners recently discovered how the state’s overriding of local zoning can directly impact people. Their neighbor is installing an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) four feet from their back fence line. It towers over the fence, with windows that look directly into their backyard, and into their home. When they contacted the city, the response they received was that it complied with state law and there isn’t anything the city can do.
