Zoning: General Agricultural District (A-2) General Plan: Single-Family Residential-Very-Low Density (SV) & Open Space (OS)
Document Description
The proposed project consists of a request for approval of a Variance Permit authorizing the construction of a new 26-foot residential access bridge to replace a previous access bridge that was previously removed. The variance request is to allow a 0-foot front setback for the bridge structure, where 25 feet is required by zoning. Additionally, to accommodate the project’s construction impacts to code-protected trees, the proposal also includes a request for a Tree Permit to work within the driplines of four (4) code-protected trees (ranging in sizes from 10 to 40 inches in diameter: 1 Coast Live Oak/1 Valley Oak/1 Buckeye/1 Eucalyptus), and the removal of two (2) dead trees on the subject property. The proposed bridge is necessary to access and develop the property with a future single-family residence.
