Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
15301, 15305
Reasons for Exemption
The project involves first and second-floor expansion of an existing two-story residence, including expansion of an existing two-car garage. The project complies with all applicable zoning code standards pertaining to allowable floor area and building height. The garage currently encroaches into the required west side setback. The garage would be expanded but the westerly two feet of the garage would be removed to increase the side setback to five feet, the minimum required by the City's Zoning Code. The addition would increase the parking capacity of the garage from two cars to four cars, while the encroachment would be lessened through the project. The garage's longstanding location would combine with dense, mature landscaping along the west property line to mitigate any view, use or massing impacts that could potentially result from expansion as proposed. The building pad is largely flat and no grading or major landscaping alteration is proposed as part of the project.
