Most single story residential additions of less than 700 square feet and adding less than 50% of the existing structure can be reviewed by the Planning Division over the counter. For larger additions, a Design Review Permit will be required. Please contact the Planning Division for more information on this process. For Building Code information, please contact Plans & Permits at (510) 494-4460 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In response to concerns from community members, the City is currently considering new limitations on the size and design of additions to single-family homes in Fremont. For more information, visit our Update of Zoning & Guidelines for Neighborhoods webpage.
