Project Description

The applicant is requesting Design Review approval to construct a new 441 square-foot detached garage on a 10,200 square-foot developed lot in Mill Valley. The existing residence is 2,982 square feet, and the proposed development would have a building area of 3,423 square feet and a floor area of 2,982 square feet, resulting in a floor area ratio of 29 percent. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 15 feet above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: eight feet from the southern front property line; five feet from the eastern side property line; 67 feet from the western side property line; and more than 100 feet from the northern rear property line. The project includes the following proposed improvements: construction of a driveway, and general site grading to accommodate the proposed project.

Design Review approval is required pursuant to Marin County Development Code because the project entails the construction of a detached accessory structure in the required 25-foot front yard setback per the R1-B1 (Residential, Single-Family, 6,000 square feet minimum lot size) zoning district.
