A new and flexible housing type has recently been permitted in Kentucky's two largest cities.
Most commonly referred to as the Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU), this housing type is defined as a secondary independent unit on a single-family lot. ADUs are versatile in both form and function, meeting the needs of young professionals, those aging-in-place and everyone in between. Such an opportunity has residents and industry professionals alike asking – How might I make the most of this new housing option?
The Louisville and Lexington ADU Conference, which originally aired on February 1 & 2, 2022, offers national expertise on areas that are critical to the success of Accessory Dwelling Units as an emerging housing type.
These recorded sessions (linked below) offer valuable information for a range of knowledge levels when it comes to ADUs. One key objective is to provide industry professionals with a primer on how to approach the procedural elements of ADU establishment on a project-level. The other objective is to offer information on how ADUs serve as a vehicle for diverse, attractive, and accessible housing both in form and in the inclusive regulatory changes that they inspire.
