COMMISSION MEMORANDUM

TO:Honorable Mayor and Members of the City Commission 
FROM:Commissioner Ricky Arriola 
DATE:November  14, 2018
 



SUBJECT:REFERRAL TO THE LAND USE AND DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE TO DISCUSS AMENDING SEC. 142-905 OF THE CITY CODE TO PERMIT THE LEASE OF ACCESSORY DWELLING UNITS (ADUs) FOR NO LESS THAN SIX MONTHS AND ONE DAY WITHIN SINGLE-FAMILY DISTRICTS.

RECOMMENDATION

Please place this referral item on the November 14, 2018 City Commission agenda.

Miami Beach does not currently allow for accessory dwelling units (ADUs) to be rented within single-family home districts. Many progressive municipalities in Florida and across the country recognize ADUs as a tool to address housing affordability for both lessors and lessees. I ask the Land Use and Development Committee to consider permitting the lease of ADUs as an accessory use in single-family zoning districts, so long as the leases run a minimum of six months and one day.
