Village at Novato Mixed-Use Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
General Commercial: (CG), Affordable Housing Opportunity Combining Designation (CG:AHO) / General Commercial (CG), Affordable Housing Opportunity (AHO) Overlay
Document Description
The project would involve the construction of a mixed-use development with 178 residential units and 14,000 square feet of commercial/retail use on an approximately 5.85-acre infill site. Project development would consist of three buildings (Buildings A, B, and C) with Buildings A and B located on the northern parcel and Building C located on the southern parcel. Each building would include mix of studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units. In addition, 25 of the total 178 residential units (14 percent) would be below-market-rate housing. The project site would be designed to have retail development facing Redwood Boulevard and the residential units would face a common central green space. It is anticipated that the 14,000 square feet of commercial space would be occupied by multiple tenants. The project would require a General Plan Amendment to Mixed-Use, Zoning Map Amendment to Mixed Use, Use Permit, and Design Review for the development. Additionally, the project proposes to include below-market-rate units affordable to Low-Income and Very Low-Income households, which would qualify the project for a density bonus.
