Section 1 of the bill creates a series of requirements related to
accessory dwelling units in subject jurisdictions.
As established in the bill, a subject jurisdiction is the
unincorporated portion of a county that is not within:
  • A unit owners' association; or
  • An area identified as having a high fire intensity on the fire
intensity scale published as part of the Colorado state forest
service wildfire risk viewer.
The bill requires a subject jurisdiction to allow, on or after January 1,
2025, subject to an administrative approval process, the conversion of an
accessory dwelling unit. The bill also prohibits subject jurisdictions from
applying a restrictive design or dimension standard to an accessory
dwelling unit.
Section 2 grants the Colorado economic development commission
the power to contract with the Colorado housing and finance authority for
the operation of a program in which the Colorado housing and finance
authority offers direct loans for the conversion of accessory dwelling
units on owner-occupied land.
