Document Description
The applicant is requesting approval of a land use permit for the purpose of constructing a solar-covered boat & recreational vehicle storage facility and commercial solar energy generating facility on the subject property. The Project includes six covered parking canopies providing a total of 592 paved parking stalls for recreational vessels. The parking canopies would double as the support structure for ground-mounted solar panels comprising the proposed commercial solar energy generation land use. The aggregate area for the solar canopies/solar panel arrays is 349,494 square feet. The project would generate an estimated 10 Megawatts of clean energy per year which would be sold directly to residents and businesses in the County via either PG&E or the Marin Clean Energy (MCE) Feed-in-Tarriff program. The project would interconnect to Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E’s) pre-existing electrical distribution system via existing utility poles located within the Bixler Road right-of-way to export solar energy generated on site into the existing utility grid. The project also includes a proposed two-story building consisting of a 1,476 s.f. first floor office area, and a 1,381 s.f. managers apartment unit. The project includes an exception request from collect and convey requirements specified in Chapter 914-2 of the County Subdivision Ordinance for each Land Use Permit approval. The exception request would allow the existing drainage pattern to remain, where collection and conveyance, without diversion and within an adequate storm drainage system, to an adequate natural watercourse having a definable bed and banks or to an existing adequate public storm drainage system which conveys the storm water to an adequate natural watercourse is required.
