Project Description

The applicant requests Coastal Permit and Use Permit approval to demolish an existing 1,400 square foot house and construct a new 2,156 square foot house with a 282 square foot garage. Seven hundred square feet of unimproved, crawl space and storage space would not be included in the floor area because of the low ceiling heights. There is an existing 260 square foot non-conforming shed on the property that is proposed to remain. The 2,990 square feet of proposed floor area would result in a floor area ratio of 26.3 percent on the 11,350 square foot lot. According to the plans, the proposed building would reach a maximum height of 25 feet above finished grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 25 feet from the north front property line; 7 feet from the east side property line; 6.5 feet from the west side property line; 54 feet from the south rear property line. The applicants also propose to legalize an existing 260 square foot shed. The shed reaches a maximum height of 15 feet, and is located 5 feet from the west side property line, and 13 feet from the south rear property line

Coastal Permit approval is required because the project is in the Coastal Zone, and a Use Permit is required because the existing non-conforming shed encroaches on the rear and west side setbacks.
