The Escondido ADU guide

SnapADU team members know the city’s regulations and processes very well. Turnaround times at the city are lengthy, due to a sequential processing system in which the planning department does a full review prior to submitting the plans to the rest of the departments. Escondido requires in-person submissions which does add some processing time and expense as well.

Also, note that much of what is considered Escondido actually falls under the County of San Diego jurisdiction – we will happily check your property jurisdiction & zoning so you know what you can build.
