Project Description

The applicant requests a Coastal Permit approval to demolish an existing 3,740 square foot fire station and construct a new 8,653 square foot station on a developed lot in Tomales, California. The 8,653 square feet of proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 12.8 percent on the 74,260 square foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 33 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 68 feet from the north front property line; 20 feet from the east side property line; 46 feet from the west side property line; 166 feet from the south rear property line. The Northwest portion of the property is adjacent to a Stream Conservation Area, and some tree removal is proposed as part of the project. The applicant has provided a Construction Management Plan that addresses these issues, verifying that the project will stay out of the Stream Conservation Area and tree removal will be conducted with biological sensitivity to nesting birds.

Coastal Permit approval is required because the project is in a Coastal Zoning District.

Zoning: C-ARP-5 (Coastal Agricultural Planned Zoning District, 1 unit/5 acres)
Countywide Plan Designation: C-AG3 (Coastal Agricultural, 1 unit/1-9 acres)
Community Plan (if applicable): N/A
