3. Rental Housing Impact Fees

Preview

The Board will conduct a hearing to consider a resolution to amend the method for calculating floor area in the County’s Rental Housing Impact Fee resolution for new multi-family rental development. In October 2016, the County adopted a fee schedule to clarify the amount that prospective developers of these land use types can expect to pay. The fee schedule is structured to exact fees on a per-unit basis using a three-tier system that encourages the development of smaller units that are likely to be leased at more affordable rates. The use of gross floor area (that which is within exterior walls) presents a complication for staff; changing to a net floor area would allow staff to only calculate living space. The modification better reduces burdens on staff and clarifies calculation methods.

Review

The Board conducted the hearing and approved the amendment to calculating floor area.

4. Karuna Land LLC Master Plans

Preview

No earlier than 2:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a hearing to consider the Karuna Land LLC Master Plan Amendment, Precise Development Plan and Vesting Tentative Map pertaining to the proposed development on a 10.6-acre parcel at 1 Sacramento Ave. in unincorporated Sleepy Hollow neighborhood near San Anselmo (APN 177-220-10). In January 2014, Board approved the Karuna Master Plan Ordinance with amendments, adopted the Negative Declaration of Environmental Impact, and denied without prejudice the Vesting Tentative Map and Precise Development Plan. Several issues remained unresolved and the parties went into mediation. In August 2016, a writ of mandate cause of action was briefed to Marin County Superior Court, and a remand hearing in January 2017 was a follow-up to address four remaining issues. The Board accepted the court's decision and approved staff's recommendations to move forward with plans. 

Review

The Board conducted the hearing and approved the Karuna Land LLC plans.
