As of December 1, 2020, zoning changes were adopted regarding Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) for all of Portland. Home Start has been advocating for ADUs for many years as an affordable way to increase year round housing on Peaks. Several regulations pertain to Peaks specifically, most importantly that ADUs built on Peaks can be rented year round only. No short term rental units are permitted. With expert assistance from residential designer Rachel Conly, Home Start has created a Guide to ADUs on Peaks Island. Paper copies are available at the Peaks Library.
