An ADU must provide one parking space in addition to parking required for the primary dwelling. The parking space may be covered or uncovered and can be provided on an existing paved driveway. However, in the following instances, no additional parking space is required:
a. The accessory dwelling unit is located within one-half mile walking distance of public transit, including transit stations and bus stops.
b. The accessory dwelling unit is located within a historic district.
c. The accessory dwelling unit is part of the proposed or existing primary residence or an accessory structure.
d. When on-street parking permits are required but not offered to the occupant of the accessory dwelling unit.
e. When there is a designated car share vehicle parking space located within one block of the accessory dwelling unit.
When a garage, carport, or covered parking structure providing required parking for the primary residence or residences is demolished to allow for the construction of an ADU or is converted to an ADU, those parking spaces are not required to be replaced.
