On Tuesday, July 11, 2017, at 7:30pm at Corte Madera Town Hall, the Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing to review and consider adoption of an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration and approval of Design Review and Variance applications for a new two-story Mixed-Use (Office & Retail) Building at 200 Nellen Avenue.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Corte Madera Planning Commission will hold a public hearing to review information regarding a request for Design Review and Variance approval to demolish the existing used car lot structures and surface lot (Active Auto Sales) and construct a new, two-story 8,701 sq. ft. retail and office building with 39 on-site parking spaces. An ingress-egress driveway is proposed on Fifer Avenue and an egress only driveway is proposed on Nellen Avenue. A new curb cut is required to create the driveway access to Nellen Avenue. The intended uses are retail on the first floor (4,695 sq. ft.) and administrative offices on the second floor (3,747 sq. ft.). A semi-detached elevator shaft is proposed adjacent to the northwest corner of the building. The application does not include any signs at this point. The subject property is governed by the Mixed Use Commercial Land Use Designation and the C-3 (Medium-Density Residential) Zoning District. The variances request are to allow parking within 20 feet of the property line adjacent to Nellen Avenue, to allow parking within 20 feet of the property line adjacent to Fifer Avenue and to allow the building to be placed within 25 feet of the side property line side yard setback next to 220 Nellen Ave. (MMWD)

An Initial Study (IS) and Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) were prepared. The IS/MND did not find any potential environmental impacts that could not be mitigated to a less-than-significant level. The public review period for the MND was noticed and began on June 22, 2017 and will end on Tuesday July 11, 2017.
