I'm applying for ADU amnesty. Does my ADU have to follow design and zoning regulations?
Yes. The Community Development Department cannot ignore zoning violations. Owners will have to go through a variance process if the unit does not meet required building setbacks, size requirements, design requirements or other requirements under the Development section of the Municipal Code. . The City shall inform each applicant of design and zoning non-conformities discovered during the review process. The owner of any ADU found to have significant structural or aesthetic non-conformities shall then seek any appropriate variances pursuant to Glenwood Springs Municipal Code Sections 070.030.160, 070.040.050, and 070.050.110. A fee of $100 shall be assessed for the application and review of any variances. The prior existence of any such ADU design or zoning non-conformity shall be considered extraordinary conditions peculiar to the site.
