To: Public Agencies and Interested Parties

Project Title: Residences at Preserve

Lead Agency: Town of Corte Madera, 300 Tamalpais Drive, Corte Madera, CA 94925

Contact:  Adam Wolff, Director of Planning and Building, (415) 927-5064,

In accordance with the State CEQA Guidelines, the Town of Corte Madera has prepared this notice to inform agencies and interested parties that it is releasing an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/ MND) for the proposed Robin Drive – The Preserve Phase II development project.

Project Description and Location

The Project is located on an undeveloped parcel southeast of the corner of Paradise Drive and Robin Drive in the Town of Corte Madera (APN 038-011-21). The Project would develop the 5.93-acre lower portion of the overall 15.42-acre parcel. The upper (southern) portion of the parcel would remain undeveloped as private open space. A public access easement would be recorded to maintain a footpath that traverses the upper portion from Robin Drive in a north-south direction to Ring Mountain. The Project would construct rental housing consisting of 16 single-family residential units, 8 accessory dwelling residential units, and accessory facilities including a private roadway, sidewalks, bridge, utilities, and landscaping as part of a Planned Development. In addition, the Project includes a Zoning Amendment to change the zoning overlay for the site.

The Project would not be located on a site enumerated under Section 65962.5 of the Government Code related to hazardous waste disposal.

Potential Environmental Impacts: The proposed MND did not find any potential environmental impacts that could not be mitigated to a less-than-significant level.
