Project Description

Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct a 100 square foot detached accessory structure in the rear yard of a property developed with an existing residence in an unincorporated area of Kentfield. The existing floor area ratio of 19 percent on the 14,375 square foot lot would remain unchanged because the proposed structure is exempt from the floor area calculation. The proposed structure would reach a maximum height of 10 feet above the surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: more than 100 feet from the northern front property line; more than 100 feet from the eastern side property line; 5 feet from the western side property line; and 8 feet, 7 inches from the southern rear property line. Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including a new gate, fencing, pavers, and landscaping.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Section 22.42.020.B because the project proposes locating a detached accessory within a required setback.
