I applaud San Diego County's proactive approach to the housing shortage that affects Fallbrook and all Californians. The San Diego County Board of Supervisors has set aside $11 million to fund a five-year trial program that offers significant fee waivers that encourage homeowners in unincorporated areas to build an Accessory Dwelling Unit, commonly called a granny flat, on their property. The program makes it feasible for a wide range of families to build. The five years will go quickly, so I advise homeowners to start thinking ahead now.
