The 2,135 square feet of proposed building area would – of which 1,595 square feet is considered floor area – would result in a floor area ratio of 26 percent on the 19,257 square foot lot. The maximum height and minimum setbacks for the proposed development are provided below.

The proposed additions to the single-family residence would reach a maximum height of 29.75 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 0 feet from the northern front property line; 81 feet from the western side property line; 56 feet from the eastern side property line; 54 feet from the southern rear property line.

The proposed retaining wall would reach a maximum height of 10 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setbacks: 68 feet from the northern front property line; over 100 feet from the western side property line; 22 feet, 6 inches from the eastern side property line; 27 feet from the southern rear property line.

The proposed deck would reach a maximum height of 10 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior would have the following setbacks: 44 feet, 4 inches from the northern front property line; over 100 feet from the western side property line; 8 feet from the eastern side property line; 27 feet from the southern rear property line.

Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including interior remodeling of bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms; new patios; and new doors and windows on the exterior of the residence.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020.B because the lot would contain more than 3,500 square feet of floor area with the proposed development.
