PUBLIC HEARINGS – Declarations regarding Planning Commissioner Public Contacts
1. STANDARDS FOR MULTI-FAMILY ZONED PROPERTIES/CITY-WIDE (ZOA 10-355)
City of Sausalito (Applicant)
DESCRIPTION: Amendment of Title 10 (Zoning) of the Municipal Code regarding the standards and regulations for residences in the Multi-Family (R-2-2.5 and R-3) Zoning Districts. The proposed regulations would be applicable to projects which provide fewer units than the maximum density allowed. The amendment would lessen the allowable floor area, building coverage and impervious surfaces of the largest unit on a parcel in the R-2-2.5 and R-3 Zoning Districts and mandate that floor area, building coverage and impervious surfaces be held in reserve for an additional unit(s). The total maximum allowable amount of floor area, building coverage and impervious surface would not be reduced. The amendment also adds additional findings for Design Review Permits, shortens the 30-day completeness review time for multi-unit projects, allows for exceptions to parking requirements and amends the definition of building coverage and impervious surfaces.
RECOMMENDATION: Review the draft Zoning Ordinance amendment, make appropriate modification and continue the public hearing to June 26, 2013 meeting.
2. WOODMAN RESIDENCE / 6 JOSEPHINE STREET (DR/EA 13-037)
