The cities of Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Grover Beach, and Morro Bay obtained grant funding as joint applicant to hire a consultant and create a pre-approved Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) plan program. The goal of this joint effort is to expedite the ADU permitting process and encourage the construction of accessory units to support our regional housing goals. This page lays out the options and process for using the pre-designed plans.
Staff will then email the applicant a link to the construction plans
Once the plans are received, the applicant can update the Project Information section of the cover sheet, check the appropriate boxes for optional design choices, and insert a site plan of the property. The site plan shall include:
Dimensioned property lines
Footprint of ADU
Distances from ADU to property lines and other structures on the property
Erosion control plan
Upload the plans to the Permit Portal with the items from Step 4 completed for staff review. When site plan review is complete the building permit is ready to issue!
