I support the change. We need more housing in Provo and ADUs are a wonderfully subtle way to add more of it. I wish that more aggressive measures could be taken in more places, e.g. townhomes, without the big political process of reminding the community that it's okay to build more housing.
There were concerns about parking expressed in another public comment that I would like to address. I live in a community where nearly, every house is a duplex. We have parking restrictions in the middle of the night so you can't regularly park on the street. There are only a few cars that do, but nothing that restricts the supply of parking spaces available on the street. Since the home will provide 4 spots for 2 families and renting families are unlikely to have more than 1 car, much less 2 it is unlikely that parking would become an issue. In the worst case, they have 3 cars and don't tell anyone. In this case, they park one car on the street (which will barely effect the supply available on the street) and if anyone on the street cares, they call the city and the city makes them take care of it.

Over parking on the street is a big problem. It happens in my area ALL the time. Zoning/parking rules are not enforced. because of the way the rental rules are written all a person has to do is say "they are my family". The zoning regulators have no way to check so nothing is done. When there are 10 to 12 cars parked on the street at a home where the garage is boarded up to be used as a bedroom in a home that is 1000 SQ. feet and only has one bathroom has 15 or more people living in it and NONE are children you might think there is a problem. But all the owner has to say is they are all family. Accessory dwelling is Ok if that "dwelling" has a desegrated onsite parking area for all persons driving cars attached to that "dwelling". Allowing street parking to count will not work!!!
