Project Description

The applicant requests Design Review approval to construct a 114 square-foot addition to an existing residence located in an unincorporated area of Mill Valley. The 114 square feet of proposed construction would include a 78 square-foot addition to the third floor and a 36 square-foot addition to the second floor that would result in a floor area ratio of 34.6 percent on the 7,500 square-foot lot. The proposed addition would reach a maximum height of 30 feet above the surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: 25 feet from the eastern front property line; 48 feet, 6 inches from the northern side property line;  45 feet, 6 inches from the southern side property line; and 34 feet from the western rear property line. Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including an expansion of the existing deck and stairs in the rear yard.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Section 22.42.020.C because the project proposes to qualify for a Variance Waiver provided in Section 22.54.045.B.
