Design Review for all Second/Third Story Additions
Design Review for all Second and Third Story Additions
The San Anselmo Town Council will be considering an ordinance that would require Design Review for all second story and higher additions to residential structures, regardless of size. A series of meetings have been held on the topic (see below). Please contact us with any questions and to provide comments for the Town Council.
CURRENT DESIGN REVIEW REQUIREMENTS FOR UPPER STORIES
The Town began conducting design review in 1967. At that time, single family homes were exempt from review. Over the years, the Town has expanded the design review requirement to single family residences. For single-family residential projects, design review is required as follows:
Site above, or partially above, 150 Mean Sea Level Hillside Lot
Site below 150 Mean Sea Level Flatland Lot
Any addition greater than 500 sq. ft.
2nd or 3rd story addition greater than 400 sq. ft.
