I received a letter in the mail from my neighbor informing me that she intends to build an “accessory dwelling unit” on her property. We live in Oregon. From the letter, it sounds like the accessory dwelling will be a new house that can be rented to a third party.

My quiet neighborhood is composed of mostly families. I am concerned that the new dwelling on my neighbor’s property will be rented to young, rowdy people. What can I do to stop my neighbor from building the new dwelling on her property?
