How to make ADUs work for your community?

Are you eager to explore the potential of Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and discover how they can create more affordable housing options in Maine? Look no further! GrowSmart Maine is thrilled to invite you to our upcoming webinar, where we will delve into the world of ADUs and share insights that can empower you to make a meaningful difference in your community.

Our featured speakers will provide in-depth knowledge and practical advice on how ADUs can address housing challenges, promote affordability, and enhance the quality of life for individuals and communities alike.

During this webinar, you can expect to learn about:

  • What is keeping people from building them?
  • What are the policy implications for your town?
  • How can local ordinances help streamline permitting of ADU?
  • What are some of the lesson-learned from towns that have put in place incentives for ADUs?
  • How can ADUs be affordable, what are the financing options?

While there are state and federal efforts to support climate-friendly agriculture, this webinar focuses on what towns and municipalities can do to make local farms and farmland a part of resilient communities.

By attending this webinar, you’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of ADUs and be well-equipped to advocate for their implementation in your area or explore ADU opportunities for your own property.

Don’t miss this chance to connect with professionals, advocates, and community members who share your passion for affordable housing solutions. We believe that ADUs can play a pivotal role in creating more sustainable, inclusive, and vibrant communities.
