Currently, people extend and convert without going to the zoning board, building dept, or anything. Within a stones throw of where I sit, there are three illegally extended and enclosed back porches, and three illegal boarding/rooming houses, at least one of which has three kitchens. The ADU thing is not going to do squat for affordable housing in Lowell, as the majority will be used for existing families to spread out.
