The Vista ADU Guide

SnapADU has permitted numerous projects within the city, and we know Vista’s regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are extremely fast. But homeowners should anticipate higher permit fees (closer to $16-20/sqft for larger units), as plan check, building permit, and impact fees are not waived for ADUs >750 sqft (impact fees will be proportional to the size of the primary dwelling). To balance this, Vista does offer a fee waiver program for qualified ADUs (either for caregivers or low income).

Vista requires in-person submissions which does add some processing expense. Also, soils reports are generally required for ADUs, as well as storm water mitigation.
