Pre Approved Plans for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs)

Posted on April 14, 2023

The city of Bend has introduced a new program called the Pre-Approved Accessory Dwelling Unit Plans program that streamlines the process of building an ADU. This program allows property owners to use pre-approved building plans that have already passed Building Plan Review and meet building code, reducing the amount of time city staff spend reviewing plans and eliminating the time and cost of designing an ADU from scratch. The goal of the program is to provide more diverse housing types throughout the city, with the program expected to evolve over time. The city currently offers one pre-approved plan and more options are expected to come in the future.
