The applicant requests Design Review, Second Unit and Tree Removal Permit approval to construct a new 4,714 square foot residence (area includes an attached 749 square foot second unit and an attached 637 square foot garage) on a vacant lot in unincorporated San Anselmo. The project would result in a floor area ratio of 5.6 percent. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of approximately 28 feet above surrounding grade and would be located the following distances from corresponding property lines: 1 foot, 3 inches from the Sacramento Avenue right-of-way (to the west); 12 feet, 2 inches from the easterly side property line; and 94 feet, 3 inches from the northerly rear property line. The project also includes construction of retaining walls varying in height from 0 to 11 feet, the partial extension of the Sacramento Avenue right-of-way to serve the proposed residence, and the installation of a fire truck turnaround. The applicant is also proposing to provide an at-grade transition for future pedestrian access to the unpaved portion of the Sacramento Avenue right-of-way.
Design Review approval is required pursuant to Section 22.42.030.C of the Marin County Development Code (Hillside Building Sites) because the project is located on a vacant property with a slope of greater than 25 percent and would exceed 3,000 square feet of building area. Second Unit Permit approval is required because the proposal includes an attached accessory dwelling unit within the footprint of the proposed primary residence. Tree Removal Permit is required because the project entails the removal of two protected trees on a vacant property.
