Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct a 2,511 square-foot single-family residence with an enclosed 805 square-foot understory and an attached 535 square-foot garage on a vacant lot in south San Rafael.  The proposed development would result in a building area of 3,046 square feet, a floor area of 3,319 square feet, and a floor area ratio (FAR) of 49 percent on the 6,750 square-foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 29 feet, 10 ¾ inches above surrounding grade, and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 15 feet from the northern front property line; five feet from the western and eastern side property lines; and 64 feet, seven inches from the southern rear property line. Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including a driveway, new landscaping various general site improvements to accommodate the proposed project. 

Design Review approval is required because the project involves construction of a new structure in a planned development district, in accordance with Marin County Code Section 22.42.020(A).
