There is an ongoing housing crisis all over the state of California. Each city is struggling tremendously to make sure there is affordable housing available to the average individual. However, it is a lot more difficult to make housing affordable since the cost of living has increased over the years. As well with there being a low supply of homes available this created a bidding war for property, thus the concept of supply and demand. Specifically in Pacific Grove, the ongoing issue is that there is not enough housing due to the natural environmental barrier next to them which is the ocean. In this paper it will discuss the project of accessory dwelling units to try and help fight this ongoing housing crisis.
