Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). One or more rooms with private bath and kitchen facilities comprising an independent, self-contained dwelling unit within or attached to a single-family dwelling or in a detached building on the same lot as the primary dwelling unit. An ADU is distinguishable from a duplex in that, unlike a duplex, it is clearly subordinate to the primary dwelling unit, both in use and appearance. (Ord. M-4209 § 2, 08/07/2017- Effective 09/06/2017; Ord. M-3931 § 25, 11/02/2009; Ord. M-3643, 01/26/2004)
