Slums or affordable housing?

Opponents say survey shows number of accessory dwellings units could soar
Lee and Alma Evans, who live on East Fourth Avenue, say they have created a map showing accessory dwelling units, both occupied and unoccupied, stretching from East Second Avenue to East Ninth Avenue, and from First Street to 15th Street. The Evans estimate 80 to 90 percent of the units are illegal.
“Durango is so expensive. It’s really difficult to live here as a single person,” said Jessi Scavo, who has lived in an accessory dwelling unit for the past few months. Scavo said her centrally located home makes it easier to juggle her two jobs.
