Project Description

The applicant requests Coastal Permit approval to construct a detached 1,196 square-foot Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) on a developed property in Bolinas. The proposed structure, in combination with the existing 2,057 square-foot development on the site, would result in a floor area ratio of 8 percent on the 40,000 square foot lot. The proposed ADU would reach a maximum height of 15 feet, four inches above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 25 feet from the north front property line; 10 feet from the east side property line; and over 100 feet from all other property lines. The project also includes various general site improvements to implement the project.

Coastal Permit approval is required pursuant to Marin County Local Coastal Program, Implementation Section 22.68.030, because the project proposed a development tin the Coastal Zone.
