CHICO, Calif. - The Chico City Council addressed the housing crisis in Wednesday night's meeting.

They hope to create incentives for property owners to add rental units in the form of "tiny homes," the technical term being Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). 

Some of the incentives discussed include eliminating requirements that property owners also live on site, creating an amnesty program for existing tiny homes that are not in compliance, and putting a ban on building fees. 

"Given the crisis, and given the incredible community interest in housing people that have been displaced, I think we can get this done," said Karl Ory of the Chico City Council. "I'm very confident."

The council voted to create a committee to address the specific proposals and return in two weeks.
