Residential Design Guidelines

Residential Design GuidelinesThe Zoning Code requires that all changes to the exterior design of single-family and two-family residences in the City requiring discretionary approval or a building permit must be consistent with San Bruno's Residential Design Guidelines.

Neighborhood Character

The Residential Design Guidelines were created to ensure that residential alterations and new construction are done in a manner that respects the character of the City's neighborhoods.

Project Review

The Residential Design Guidelines are an essential reference for any property owner or developer proposing to remodel or expand an existing home, or construct new houses. The City's planning staff, Planning Commission, and City Council apply the Residential Design Guidelines in evaluating changes to existing homes, and for new single-family residential construction.
