Can a garage be used for a dwelling area?

Conversion of a garage into a sleeping room is not permitted. Garages are to be used for the temporary storage of vehicles. However, garages can be converted into Accessory Dwelling Units subject to compliance with RSMZC Section 9.04.190 and approval by the Development Services Department and approval of a Building Permit.  Please contact the Development Services Department at 949-635-1800 x6704 for further information.
