Newport Beach OKs Granny Flats
In an effort to increase available housing, and comply with the new state laws, Newport Beach has approved changes to the zoning code to ease restrictions.
“This is a low-cost option that allows for a private property owner to develop accessory dwelling units on their property and would allow them the incentive of collecting rent,” said Jaime Murillo, senior planner for the city. “It would allow for kind of a below-market-rate rent opportunity for students or elderly or young families.”
