Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct a new 3,058 square foot addition, a new 479 square foot deck extension including a 336 square foot portion that would be covered, and a new 181 square foot covered deck on a developed lot in Novato. The 3,718 square feet of proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 6 percent on the 102,366 square foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 27 feet, 8 inches above surrounding grade and it appears the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 96 feet, 5 inches from the northern front property line; 36 feet from the eastern side property line; 111 feet from the western side property line; 126 feet from the southern rear property line.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020.B because the project entails constructing additions that would result in a total floor area of more than 3,500 square feet on the property.
