Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review and Tree Removal Permit approval to construct a new 3-story 4,454 square foot residence and a 613 square-foot attached garage on a vacant lot in San Rafael. The new residence would consist of 5,067 square feet of total building area and 4,527 square-feet of total floor area, which would result in a floor area ratio of 20 percent on the 22,199 square-foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 40 feet above surrounding grade. The garage is proposed to be located 8 feet from the northern front property line and 8 feet 5 inches from the western side property line. The house is located 23 feet 9 inches from the northern property line, 8 feet 5 inches from the western side property line, 71 feet 9 inches from the eastern side property line, and 64 feet 7 inches from the southern rear property line. Two trees classified as “protected” as per the Marin County Development Code, are proposed to be removed to accommodate construction of the residence and associated site improvements.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020 because the project will result in total floor area that is greater than 3,500 square feet. A Tree Removal Permit is required because more than one “protected” tree is proposed to be removed.
