Planning Application PA18-011 for an exception permit to allow the interior dimensions of a garage of a single family residence to be less than the required width of 20'-0" at 16 Windflower in Aliso Viejo, CA. The property owner is proposing to install an energy storage system into the existing garage to power the residence in case of an emergency and the remaining garage area would need to be reduced to a width of 18'-10". The reduced width will still allow the property to maintain the 2 parking spaces required by the zoning code.
It consists of permitting existing public or private structures involving negligible or no expansion of the use beyond that existing at the time of the lead agency's determination. The proposed project qualifies for a class I exemption as it entails the minor alteration to reduce the overall width of an existing garage.
