The Annapolis City Council approved the introduction of two bills Monday night meant to expand residential housing options in the city, including a new version of a previously-withdrawn ordinance that would allow accessory dwelling units in some city zoning districts. Aldermen Brooks Schandelmeier, D-Ward 5, and DaJuan Gay, D-Ward 6, are the cosponsors of O-9-21, a bill that would legalize and regulate homes that go by many names such as secondary suites, accessory apartments and “granny” flats. The units would be allowed as accessory use in all zones that allow single-family homes. Some common uses include a converted garage or basement apartment.
