The Salt Lake City Council on Tuesday approved an ordinance to allow accessory dwelling units, also known as mother-in-law apartments, citywide.

“We have spent an enormous, an amazing amount of time on this ordinance. And I think we need to pass it tonight and see how it shakes out in our community … and come back and revisit it in two to three years and see how it’s taken shape,” said Councilman Derek Kitchen prior to Tuesday’s vote.

“This will not fix the affordable housing issue in our community, but when we have such a tight housing market, adding any units will inevitably help us bring down rent, even nominally,” Kitchen said.

An accessory dwelling unit is a second living space built next to or attached to an existing home on a single-family property.

The ordinance passed with a 5-1 vote.
