Pleasant Grove says no to accessory apartments

PLEASANT GROVE (Daily Herald) -- The months of uncertainty over whether the city would begin allowing accessory apartments in single family homes came to an end at the latest City Council meeting -- such apartments are still illegal in Pleasant Grove.

"I'm going to be dealing with a lot of serious situations," community development director Ken Young said about the large number of accessory apartments in the city.

Council members decided to discuss the enforcement and definition of accessory apartments further before anything is done about the current apartments.

"We understand that there are a number of accessory apartments in the city, and we believe that most of them were not created with the intent to break the law," Mayor Bruce Call said. "We want to be sensitive to those who are currently living in those apartments or renting them out, but we also want to maintain the intended nature of our single-family neighborhoods."
