The applicant is requesting Minor Design Review approval to construct a new 105 square foot addition on a lot developed with a single-family dwelling in San Rafael. The 105 square feet of proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 30 percent on the 8,168 square foot lot. The proposed addition would reach a maximum height of 17 feet above surrounding grade to match the existing roofline and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 67 feet from the northeastern front property line; 40 feet from the northwestern side property line; 6.25 feet from the southeastern side property line; 41.5 feet from the southwestern rear property line. Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including new doors, new windows, a new garage door, new fencing, driveway repaving, and repaving in the rear yard.
Minor Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.30.040.E because the project entails constructing an addition in the R1-B-LV (Single-family Residential Lucas Valley) zoning district.
