Document Description
A request by Cool Properties, LLC for a Development Plan/Coastal Development Permit (DRC2020-00152) to allow for the phased development of two residences, one guesthouse and an agricultural barn. Phase 1 consists of the demolition of an existing collapsed barn, construction of an agricultural barn (4,000 sf) with one residence located in the upper story with associated site improvements. Phase 2 consists of the construction of two new single-family residences (between 2,500-4,500 sf), and the conversion of the residential unit within the agricultural barn into a guesthouse. This project includes the creation of two building envelopes ranging from 12,500 sf to 21,000 sf, dedication of a coastal public trail easement, and a request to modify the front yard setback standard for an agriculture accessory structure. The applicant is also requesting a Variance to allow grading on slopes greater than 30%. The project would result in approximately 1.61 acres of total site disturbance including 6,700 cubic yards (cy) of cut and 2,500 cy of fill (total of 9,200 cy of earthwork with 4,200 cy of export) on a 54.95-acre parcel.
