FAQs

  • How can I build an ADU on my property?
  • Please see our "ADU Building" page for more information from the City of Omaha.
  • Are there any construction organizations that specialize in ADUs in Omaha?
  • As far as we are aware, there are no companies in Nebraska, Kansas, or Iowa that specialize in these constructions.
  • Why doesn't the planning department just change the zoning code to legalize ADUs in more neighborhoods?
  • Change to zoning codes occurs when there is political will from grassroots efforts. Decisions from the Mayor, or City Council will make changes occur.
  • How many ADUs are there in Omaha today?
  • We are unsure exactly how many ADUs are in Omaha today, but we know that most were built in Dundee and Aksarben as either converted carriage homes or jockey houses, respectively. We do know that there have not been any applications for ADUs approved in the past few years in Omaha due to the incredibly stringent regulations.
