Here's a bit of ADU news about our neighbors up the hill from the DJ:

Hillsborough residents Monday gave an earful to town officials that they don’t want apartments or rezoning to meet state housing mandates, preferring to stick with a plan to use in-law units instead. As part of its Housing Element process, mandated by the state to zone for 554 new affordable housing units by 2031.

So far, suggestions (Ed: from the public) have included maximizing the number of ADUs on a lot including incentives to build more. Hillsborough has issued 236 ADU permits since 2014, according to a staff report.

Plans to rezone designated areas of the town and build a town hall apartment complex were additional options. The apartment complex proposal includes a five-story building with between 88 to 123 apartments on Town Hall property at Floribunda Avenue and El Camino Real. (Ed: More on this later)
