Newport Beach planning officials will hold an informal public meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight to address homeowners' questions about proposed zoning changes that could affect the size and shape of homes citywide.
The changes would affect existing dwellings and the dimensions of future dwellings, according to a city press release.
"As a practical matter, it's not going to make much difference in giving more volume or less volume," City Planning Director David Lepo said. "But we know that when you're building your home and you're worried about your $2 million investment, every foot counts."
The current zoning code sets limits based on the building volume and square footage of a property, or by what's called the floor-area-ratio.
