Project Description

The applicant is requesting Variance approval to construct a new 39 square foot addition on a developed lot in Mill Valley. The 39 square feet of proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 29.7 percent on the 7,762 square foot lot. The proposed addition would reach a maximum height of 11 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setbacks from the exterior walls: 18 feet 1 inch from the southeastern front property line; 17 feet 3 inches from the southwestern side property line; and more than 100 feet from the northeastern side property line.

Variance approval is required because the project encroaches into the required 25-foot front yard setback.

Zoning: R1:B1 (Single Family Residential, 6,000 square feet minimum lot size)
Countywide Plan Designation: SF6 (Single-family, 4-7 units/acre)
Community Plan (if applicable): Tamalpais Community Plan
