Project Description

On August 5, 2021, the applicants submitted a Planning Application requesting Coastal Permit, Variance and Design Review Amendment to amend Carter Coastal Permit, Variance and Design Review approval (P2010), originally approved on March 25, 2019. As conditioned, the approved project would demolish the existing house and construct a new 2,583 square foot residence and 286 square foot garage on a developed lot in Seadrift/Stinson Beach. The 2,583 square feet of approved development would result in a floor area ratio of 10.6 percent on the 24,348 square foot lot (dry land area). As conditioned, the proposed building would reach a maximum height at the clerestory of 20 feet 6 inches above surrounding grade and 37 feet NVAD, and no portion of the rest of the residence would exceed a maximum elevation of 33.83 feet NAVD. The exterior walls will have the following setbacks: 25 feet from the north front property line; 6 feet from the east side property line; 6 feet from the west side property line; 200 feet from the south rear property line. Additionally, the conditions of approval required that the lowest structural member of the residence to be raised three feet above the 19-foot Base Flood Elevation requirement. If the applicants choose to raise the lowest structural member less than three feet, an amendment to this approval shall be required.

The proposed amendment would modify Planning Commission Resolution No. 19-004, condition 2(B), as follows (new text is underlined while deleted text appears in strikethrough):

BEFORE ISSUANCE OF A BUILDING PERMIT, the applicant shall modify the plans to show that the lowest structural member of the residence has been raised three feet by one foot above the 19-foot Base Flood Elevation requirement. If the applicant chooses to raise the lowest structural member less than three feet, an amendment to this approval shall be required.

No other amendments to the approved projects are proposed.

In accordance with Interim Marin County Interim Zoning Ordinance Section 22.56.115I, Coastal Permit Amendment by the Planning Commission is required because the project proposes to amend conditions of approval. The Planning Commission needs to approve the permit because the Planning Commission was the body that approved the project via PC Resolution No. 19-004.
