Approval of a Viewshed Permit to allow the following: (a) Construction of a 4,653 square foot residence; 1,193 square foot second living unit; 612 square foot carport; and pool; (b) Improvement of the existing access driveway (on and off-site) to County standards except for the request noted below; (c) Installation of a wastewater system and associated infrastructure consistent with County Code; and (d) Construction of one (1) 10,000 gallon water storage tank.
The project also includes a request for an exception to the Napa County Road and Street Standards (RSS). The request proposes an exception to the State Responsibility Area Fire Safe Regulations for the driveway segment (Common Road STA 6+50 to STA +88) Anda Driveway (STA 12+88 to STA 18+67) to permit a maximum slope of 20 percent for a driveway greater than 300 feet in length without an ensuing 100 foot driveway section at a maximum slope of 10 percent because of unique features of the natural environment which includes, but not limited to natural watercourses, steep slopes, geological features, heritage oak trees or other trees at least 6" dbh. The RSS exception has been requested to preserve mature native trees on steeply sloping hillsides, minimize the need for grading on steep slopes, and to abide by the limitations of the existing access easement.
