Just do it in the middle of the night, nobody will even know. But seriously you’re not probably going to have much luck getting the city to let you add another driveway/curb cut. Add more space next to your existing driveway/curb cut or get somebody in your house to be disabled and put a handicap space in front of your house.September 14, 2012 at 1:41 PM #751457
If you want to do it the official way, I would find a planning consultant or have someone, like an architect or landscape architect to go down to the city and submit a plan.
If you want to do it the Clairemont way, just put the pad where you want it and use a nice homemade, I mean custom, set of wooden ramps.September 14, 2012 at 1:42 PM #751458
If you PM me with your email address, I’ll see if I can get an acquaintance of mine to contact you who may be able to help. You might have to pay him for a couple hours of work.September 14, 2012 at 1:48 PM #751460foreverwaitingParticipant
You mean help me by drawing the plans? I could do that, I think the guidelines are what are going to screw me regardless of how nice the plans are. Help with that now.. would be great! I would hate to spend money on fancy plans to not be able to do it.
The wooden ramp thing is funny, a guy down the street has done what I want to do, but he just put a pipe in front of his curb so water can get through and then made a concrete addition in the gutter..
I love how the permit is $600 also.September 14, 2012 at 1:56 PM #751462
I meant, help you deal w/ the city. First help you determine if it is at all possible, maybe find some loopholes. And second, walking the plan into the city to give it the the best chance of getting approved.September 14, 2012 at 1:57 PM #751463foreverwaitingParticipant

We had one neighbor do an unpermitted curb cut to a concrete pad. They were busted and had to remove the curb cut.
Another neighbor was more subtle – used grass-crete for the pad. Nicer looking… isn’t obvious, you hardly notice the curb cut because it’ just looks like more grass.
Other neighbors skipped the curb-cut and use the removable “custom” ramps that sdduuuuude mentioned.
UC, like Clairemont, is a non-covenant, nonHOA neighborhood so lots of RVs and boats that need parking.
