The applicant requests Design Review approval to replace an existing 167 square-foot rear lower deck and construct a new 77 square-foot lower deck and a new 757 square-foot upper deck along the northern rear side of an existing single-family residence in Mill Valley. The new upper level deck is proposed to reach a maximum height of 17 feet, 11 ½ inches from surrounding grade. The new upper level deck is proposed to be located approximately 32 feet from the southern front property line; 10 feet, 5 ½ inches from the western side property line; 18 feet, 6 inches from the eastern side property line; and 31 feet, 11 inches from the northern rear property line. The project also includes the following proposed improvements: the construction of new upper and lower level stairs; the construction of retaining walls in the rear yard ranging in height from 3 to 6 feet tall; earthwork that would result in 27.14 cubic yards of cut and 39.14 cubic yards of fill to raise existing grade, resulting in a new 1,505 square-foot rear yard; and a 6-foot tall screening wall along the western side of the proposed upper deck.
Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.025.G because the proposed deck exceeds a height of 5 feet from grade and a proposed retaining wall facing outwards of the center of the property exceeds a height of 4 feet.
