Document Description
The Vista Mar Project would include construction of four separate buildings, each with two attached townhomes, for a total of eight residential units. Each structure would have three stories and range from 1,622 to 1,873 sf of livable floor area. Each unit would also have a two-car garage and a roof deck. Vehicle access would be provided by a driveway with one entrance and one exit off of Monterey Road and would wrap behind the units. Retaining walls would surround the development, the maximum height of the retaining walls in the front setback, as measured from the street side, would be 3 feet. Beyond the front setback, the maximum height of the retaining walls would be 14 feet, as measured from street side. The retaining walls with the greatest height would be located in the rear of the development. One of the units would be designated as a below market rate unit. The project would generate approximately 7,300 cubic yards of cut and require approximately 1,150 cubic yards of fill. New landscaping is proposed throughout the development and undisturbed areas would maintain the natural landscape. The project would also include 6,200-sf common open space area. The project would require approval of a Tentative Subdivision Map, Site Development Permit, removal of 23 heritage trees, and logging operation.
