The ABCs of ADUs: Housing Solutions for Omaha


Join AARP Nebraska for a free Zoom webinar presented by national housing expert Eli Spevak, who will discuss Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) and ways we can help make them more widely available in Omaha.

The ABCs of ADUs: Housing Solutions for Omaha
Wednesday, August 24, 6:30-8:00 pm CT


Sometimes called in-law suites or carriage houses, ADUs are an age-friendly housing option that can benefit homeowners and help address Omaha’s housing needs. ADUs can be in-home or detached and provide homeowners a second unit on their property that can be used by their parents, children, or even as an income source.

  • What are Omaha’s current ADU regulations?
  • What are the local advocacy best practices that can be used to update Omaha’s ADU regulations?
