Adding to Existing Residences
Before designing an addition, it is recommended to determine the building setbacks, maximum height, maximum building coverage, and other development standards. These are determined by the zoning district in which the property is located. You can determine what district your property is located in by looking at thezoning map.
After determining the zoning district, refer to Zoning Ordinancesof the Municipal Code for setbacks, maximum height limitations, and other building restrictions.
Remodels of existing residences are generally allowed, but may require a building permit. Remodels of existing residences to another use (i.e. commercial use) are allowed in some zoning districts, but require a change of occupancy permit and may have additional requirements.
