The ADU production factory, and jobs that come with it, could be a really good thing for EPA and residents.

One question though, doesn’t EPA already have an extremely large amount of “ADUs” spread throughout the community? Do we really need more of them? It is already near impossible to find parking on city streets due to the large amounts of residents living in most single family homes.

Wouldn’t it be more beneficial to current residents, local schools, and parks to get more single families into single family homes? Maybe less dwellings with multiple single adults sharing rooms and already existing ADUs?
