The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct a new 2,086 square foot single-family dwelling on a vacant lot in Mill Valley. 1,408 square feet of the proposed development would be considered floor area and would result in a floor area ratio of 22 percent on the 6,460 square foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 26.25 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 8 inches from the north western front property line; 10 feet, 4 inches from the north eastern side property line; 9 feet from the south western side property line; 44 feet from the south eastern rear property line.
Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Code Section 22.42.020.D because the project entails constructing a single-family dwelling on a vacant lot that is at least 50 percent smaller in total area than required for new lots under the slope regulations in compliance with Section 22.82.050.
Zoning: R1-B2 (Residential Single-Family, minimum lot size 10,000 square feet)
