With the coming of accessory dwelling units, crowded parking conditions on streets and the likely future increase in higher-density housing, what do city regulations on landscaping and parking say?
The Garden Grove City Council will meet Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. in person in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave. and will consider that topic.
As ADUs proliferate and many houses are devoted to multiple generations and use as rental housing, many residential streets have become choked with vehicles, some of them spilled over from other crowded areas.
In response, some cities have sought to create more space for parking by allowing driveways to be widened, which reduces the total front lawn space allocated for landscaping.
Additionally, some property owners and residents have flouted existing landscaping requirements by paving over their front lawns to provide more parking.
The agenda calls for a discussion regarding city rules on landscaping and parking.
