In most cases, yes! ADUs and JADUs are allowed in all single-family and mixed-use zones. If residential buildings are allowed, ADUs are almost always allowed too (with limited exceptions for safety, traffic, and water). Confirm with Planning staff (City of Placerville Planning Department or El Dorado County Planning Services) – see our Contact page for more information.
Please give us feedback about ADUs in our area. If you leave your contact info, we may be able to get back to you with more information.
If you’re looking for specific advice or information about your property and ADU, please use the contact information for El Dorado County or the City of Placerville at the bottom of this website.
