What are Story Poles?

Story poles are used to depict the elevations and silhouette of a proposed structure or an addition to an existing building. They are intended to aid neighbors, staff personnel, and members of the decision-making bodies in their evaluation of a project application.

Story poles are placed to demonstrate height, bulk and location of a proposed project that may potentially impact public and/or private views. The placement of story poles are required for all Coastal Development Permits and for certain discretionary requests associated with Administrative Plan Review applications.

 During review of certain discretionary projects, story poles are installed to demonstrate the height and location of proposed development. Review of the story poles ensures that permitted development is sited and designed to protect public views to and along the ocean and scenic coastal areas consistent with the City's Coastal Program and to protect private primary views.
