As a result, there will be an increase of 774 cubic yards of grading (3,206 cubic yards previously approved) to accommodate a 10,382 square foot residence and 977 square foot garage. The residence will maintain the previously approved square footage and architectural design, with the exception of the highest ridgeline which will be reduced 4.23’ from the previously approved height of 276.73’ to a new maximum ridgeline of 272.5’. In addition to reducing the overall ridgeline by 4.23’, the front setback of the residence will be increased 16’, from the previously approved 42’ front setback to a revised 58’ front yard setback.

Action Deadline: November 15, 2013

Recommendation: Adopt P.C. Resolution No. 2013-__, thereby approving a Revision to Coastal Permit, Grading Permit and Site Plan Review (Case No. ZON2012-00141) for the construction of a new 10,382 square foot residence with a 977 square foot garage, 3,884 cubic yards of cut, 96 cubic yards of fill, and associated retaining and garden walls.
