The San Marcos ADU Guide

We’ve been honored to be selected to design the City of San Marcos pre-approved ADU plans, which will be released in 2024. SnapADU has permitted or is in the process of permitting numerous projects within the city, and we know the city’s regulations and processes very well.

One unusual requirement in San Marcos is that ADUs generally cannot be in the front yard (though SB-897 passed Aug 2022 will limit city’s ability to enforce this). They also require a soils report for ADUs >500 sqft. San Marcos allows for digital submissions. Turnaround times at the city are moderate.

Additionally, we have seen San Marcos projects require interaction with the Community Facilities Districts (CFD), which are commonly referred to as Mello-Roos Districts, to finance local public facilities and services. This can add months to the processing time.
