Parking is much less of a concern than it used to be. See details below for El Dorado County and the City of Placerville.
Unincorporated El Dorado County:
One off-street parking space required per unit, unless:
The required space may be tandem or in the side yard/setback (ask Planning staff to verify allowed placement). Garage conversions do not require a replacement parking space.
Detached ADUs: One off-street space required, unless:
Attached or conversion - no off-street parking requirement
Multi-family: One parking space per unit. Replacement parking required for any parking spaces eliminated by new construction.
The required space may be tandem or in the side yard/setback (ask staff to verify allowed placement).
When a garage, carport, or covered parking space is replaced by an ADU, the parking space does not need to be replaced. JADUs are still subject to parking requirements if created within an attached garage.
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.
