C-3 General Commercial Development Standards

The C-3 or "General Commercial" District generally covers commercial areas along Redhill Avenue, Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, and the eastern end of San Anselmo Avenue. This district affords opportunities for various commercial activities to serve the needs of the community as well as the needs of surrounding communities. Many of the areas within the District include existing development, or have development potential, to provide for commercial uses which require significantly larger buildings than afforded in the Central Commercial District, such as full-service grocery and drug stores, major furniture and appliance stores, and shopping centers. Residential uses are allowed within the District which provide mixed uses, live/work arrangements, and affordable housing that will not result in significant traffic disruption along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Offices and residential uses are encouraged to locate above the ground floor to preserve the District's primary purpose for providing for commercial activities.
