Project Description

The applicant is requesting Lot Line Adjustment approval to transfer 1,609 square feet between two contiguous legal lots of record as described below:

Assessor's Parcel Number Street Address Existing Area Proposed Area
146-310-14 90 Old Ranch Road 175,250 SF
(4.02 acres)
175,250 SF
(4.02 acres)
146-310-48 50 Old Ranch Raod 110,905 SF
(2.54 acres)
110,905 SF
(2.54 acres)

Specifically, an equitable exchange of 1,609 square feet of land would be transferred from the eastern portion of APN 146-310-14 to APN 146-310-48, and 1,609 square feet of land would be transferred from the southwestern portion of APN 146-310-48 to APN 146-310-14. The purpose of the Lot Line Adjustment is to remedy the encroachment of various improvements on APN 146-310-14 onto APN 146-310-48.

Pursuant to Section 22.90.020 of the Marin County Development Code, Lot Line Adjustment approval is required because the project involves adjusting lot lines between two adjacent parcels where land is taken from one parcel and added to an adjacent parcel without creating more parcels than originally existed.

Zoning: A2-B4 (Limited Agriculture, 1 acre minimum lot area)
Countywide Plan Designation: SF3 (Single-family, 1 unit/1-5 acres)
