Project Description

The applicant requests Coastal Permit and Use Permit approval to construct a new, 2,160-square-foot single family residence, a 430-square-foot detached accessory structure (garage) and associated septic system on a vacant lot in Muir Beach. The 2,959 square feet of development would result in a 11.76-percent floor area ratio on the 18,372 square foot lot. The residence would reach a maximum height of 25 feet and the detached accessory structure would reach a maximum height of 25 feet as measured from surrounding grade. The structures would maintain the following setbacks: (1) single family residence-41 feet from the north, front property line; over 100 feet from the south, rear property line, and 10 feet from the east, side and west side property lines; and (2) detached accessory structure-3 feet from the north, front property line; over 100 feet from the south; rear property line, 6 feet from the east, side property lines; and 14 feet from the west, side property line.

A Use Permit is required because the project proposes a detached accessory structure in a required setback and that exceeds the maximum height limit for the respective zoning district (Marin County Interim Zoning Code Sections 2272.050I and 22.70.030I). A Coastal Permit is required because the project involves a new septic system and requires a Use Permit (Marin County Interim Zoning Code Section 22.56.040I).
