Can I convert my garage to living space?
It is difficult to meet the requirements, but it may be possible for some properties if the required on site parking can be fully satisfied. The code requires that every single-family property have two parking spaces for each unit, one of which must be covered. Additionally, please note in planning on site parking that not more than 50% of the front yard area can be paved. Please contact the Building Division to determine if changes to the building need to be made to convert the structure to living space. Please reference Chapter 21.28, Parking and Loading, Table 3-1, Parking Requirements by Land Use; and, Section 21.18.070, Front Yard Paving of the Zoning Code for more information.
