Document Description
The applicant is requesting the issuance of the necessary permits to build a resistance and detached accessory building on a merged parcel and construct an access road within the public right-of-way of Alta Loma, Alta Mesa, and Valle Vista Roads in Montara. The house will be approximately 4,203 square feet in size and have an average height of 34.5 feet. The detached accessory building will be 2,096 square feet and 2 stories. The accessory building will be 50 feet away from the house, on the north side of the fire turnaround/courtyard. Water will be provided via an existing agricultural well which must be re-designated for residential use. Sanitary waste disposal will be provided through a septic system. Construction of the driveway, turnaround and building pads will require approximately 3,800 cubic yards of grading. The new access road will be contained within the existing street right-of-ways as depicted on the original subdivision map for this area. The new road will utilize portions of an existing dirt road which leads to the project site. The new road will have slopes ranging from 2.4% to 19.9% at its steepest. For those portions that exceed 15% the road will be paved. The rest of the road will receive a coat of liquid asphalt. Construction of the road and house pad as proposed will require the removal of 26 significant size trees.
