I have been notified of my neighbor’s intent to build an ADU. Is there anything I can do to prevent it from being built?

No, if the structure meets all zoning ADU standards and the permit is approved, the applicant can proceed with construction. There is also a requirement that applicants submit a notarized statement that the ADU does not violate any neighborhood covenants. The city does not keep, nor enforce neighborhood covenants.
