Minneapolis Pondering 'Granny Flats' Legalization
"Minneapolis has started a push to eliminate zoning rules that bar single-family homeowners from building an additional unit on their property, sometimes known as a 'granny flat,'" according to an article by Eric Roper.
"So-called accessory dwelling units are illegal in Minneapolis’ single-family residential zones, outside of an area around Ventura Village established in 2001."
To prepare for potential of changing the city's regulation of "granny flats," also known as "in-law units," the city will undertake a summer-long outreach process. Granny flats encountered controversy this spring, according to Roper, in St. Paul’s St. Anthony Park.
