On March 29, 2021, the applicants submitted a Planning Application requesting Coastal and Design Review approval to amend the Leahy Gaunt Family Trust Coastal Permit and Design Review (P2356) originally approved on October 24, 2019 via resolution of the Deputy Zoning Administrator number 19-116.
The proposed amendments include the construction of a 1,232 square-foot single-family residence on a vacant lot in Inverness. The proposed development would result in a building area of 1,402 square feet, a floor area of 1,232 square feet, and a floor area ratio of three percent on the 38,862 square-foot lot. The proposed building would reach a maximum height of 23 feet, 7 ½ inches above surrounding grade and the exterior walls would have the following setbacks: nine feet, eight inches from the southern front property line; 96 feet, three inches from the western side property line; 64 feet from the northeastern eastern side property line; and over 100 feet from the northern rear property line. Various site improvements would also be entailed in the proposed development, including a new septic system, driveway, various retaining walls, and a propane tank.
The Leahy Gaunt Family Trust Coastal Permit and Design Review (P2356) approved the construction of a new 1,628 square-foot single family residence and 120 square-foot detached accessory structure (shed) on the subject property. The development is approved to have a building area of 1,748 square feet and a floor area of 1,628 square feet, resulting in a floor area ratio of four percent on the 38,862 square-foot lot. The residence is approved to reach a maximum height of 19 feet, 9 inches above natural grade and is approved to be located 16 feet from the southern front property line; 79 feet from the eastern side property line; 104 feet from the western side property line; and more than 100 feet from the northern rear property line. Various approved site improvements include a septic system, driveway, various retaining walls, and a propane tank.
Coastal Permit approval is required pursuant to interim Marin County Code Section 22.56.0551 because the project entails improvements to a property located in a Coastal zoning district not otherwise exempt from Coastal Permit requirements. Design Review approval is required pursuant to interim Marin County Code Section 22.821 because the project site is located in a planned zoning district.
