All new additions to your home require review and approval from the Planning Division, as well as other departments. The Planning Division is responsible to verify that the proposed addition (whether it is a patio cover, an addition to the house, an accessory structure or a basic remodel) complies with the development standards (setbacks, lot coverage, parking etc.) and architectural requirements that apply in your home’s zoning designation.
At a minimum, the Planning Division will need the following for review:
All drawings must be on a 36’x24’ page and to scale (either to an Architect’s scale or Engineer's scale) with dimensions.
