Planning Board Moves the Ball Forward with Draft ADU Bylaw

By Ben Oleksinski

The Bedford Planning Board discussed a revised draft of proposed zoning bylaw amendments at their June 11 meeting, further evaluating the standards by which accessory dwelling units would be regulated.

The main bylaw change under consideration allows accessory dwelling units (ADUs) to be built within a house lot, further expanding options for homeowners. The draft, as reviewed on Tuesday, reflected what the Board interpreted from the public hearing weeks earlier, as well as their own suggestions. The end goal is to move forward a fairly practical bylaw from both viewpoints.
