Project Description

The applicant requests Variance and Design Review approval to construct 111 square feet of additional floor area to a single-family residence in unincorporated Mill Valley. The existing floor area and building area are 2,220 square feet. The proposed development would result in a building area and floor area of 2,331 square feet. Therefore, the proposed development would result in a floor area ratio of 30 percent on the 7,775-square foot lot. The proposed addition would reach a maximum height of approximately 34.9 feet above surrounding grade and would have the following setbacks: 9 feet from the eastern front property line; 13 feet from the southern side property line; 38 feet from the western side property line; 20 feet from the northern rear property line. The proposed project also includes additional roof alternations that would increase the maximum height of the building to approximately 39.11 feet, and car deck replacement located in the right-of-way.

Design Review approval is required because the project exceeds the maximum height of 30 feet. Variance approval is required because the project encroaches into the required front yard setback of 25 feet for the R1 zoning district.

Zoning: R1 (single-family Residential, 7500 sq. ft. minimum lot area)
Countywide Plan Designation: SF6 (Single-family, 4-7 units acre)
