- ADU-Garage Conversion Submittal Package: Consists of a permit application, instructions to complete the site and floor plan, space to attach interior and exterior photos illustrating the existing conditions of your garage, construction details to be referenced on the plans, and the ADU convenant to be recorded.
- ADU-Garage Conversion Reference Documents: Consists of relevant information to further assist applicants with preparation of the submittal package.
Permit applicants must complete the submittal package to the best of their abilities and present it at the time of plan check submittal to the City. Applicants must make an appointment for an over-the-counter plan review by staff from the City's Planning and Building & Safety bureaus, and pay permitting and other agency (e.g., school district) fees prior to obtaining an ADU building permit.
Starting June 17, 2019, staff from the City Planning and Building and Safety bureaus will be able to perform over-the-counter reviews of projects that fully meet the City's standards. Staff will assist applicants with adding any complementary notes or referencing details to the submittal package as long as the provisions of the standards are satisfied. Find standards here.
