Preview

At 2 p.m., the Board will consider the Bently Holdings Master Plan Amendment and Precise Development Plan Amendment, with supplemental use permit findings, for the property located at 1 and 2 Belvedere Place, Mill Valley (APN 043-151-32). On February 23, 2015, the Planning Commission recommended that the Board conditionally approve the amendments and use permit findings to allow up to 47,500 square feet of office space to be utilized for medical services on the property in unincorporated Strawberry. The 1984 Strawberry Hill Master Plan and subsequent Precise Development Plans expressly prohibited the allowance of medical offices. The location is a 10.7-acre lot with two office buildings totaling approximately 100,000 square feet just south and east of Strawberry Village, Redwood Highway and Highway 101. In June 2015, the applicant submitted a revised traffic study. In July 2015, Caltrans identified issues with the applicant's analysis and the County Department of Public Works concurred with the Caltrans comments. The matter was heard by the Board on August 11, 2015, and continued to October 2015, December 2015, February 2016 and March 2016.

Review

The Board approved the plan with modifications.
