The project is a request to construct a 3,416 sf, two story (1708 sf lower level, 1308 upper level) single family residence in the Santa Monica Mountains Coastal Zone. The height of the structure will be approximately 26'-33' from the finished grade. The residence contains 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and an attached garage. Solar panels for energy efficiency will be installed on the roof of the residence. The total building footprint area for the residence is 1,708 sf, which is approximately 2% of the lot area. The project will include a fire department required turnaround, 1-4 foot tall retaining walls, on-site wastewater treatment system, water well, draft hydrant, two 10,000 gallon water tanks, and a 1,000 gallon rainfall catchment cistern. The proposed landscaping will incorporate all locally native plants to blend with the existing landscape, and provide fire resistant and drought-tolerant landscaping. The house will incorporate minimal reflective glass and exterior illumination to comply with the dark skies ordinance. The materials palette proposes muted, earth tone colors to blend with the context and minimize potential visual impacts. The project contains slopes over 25 percent and has proposed minimal grading, with 543 cy of cut, and 218 cy of fill, and 325 cy of export. The project requires approval of a CDP for construction. The proposed project is located within 200 feet of mapped sensitive biological resources in the H2 habitat category.
