Info meeting on 'granny flats' scheduled for Tuesday in Woodstock

An informational meeting on accessory dwelling units, or “granny flats,” will be held Tuesday at the Woodstock Public Library.

The Metropolitan Mayors Caucus, the AARP, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning and the village of Bull Valley are co-hosting the event, according to a news release from the village.

An accessory dwelling unit is a second living space on the same property as a home. The units typically have their own bathrooms and kitchens.

The meeting will feature information about the units, their cost, design features, municipal ordinances and common concerns. The AARP supports the units as a way for seniors to “age in place” and not have to worry about maintaining large homes, falling or isolation, according to the release.

The meeting will be at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Woodstock Public Library, 414 W. Judd St. The session is free and open to the public.
