HEARING DATE: TUESDAY, January 20, 2015
SUBJECT SITE: 1421 and 1425 Casa Buena Drive, Corte Madera (Assessor’s Parcel Number 033-011-02)
APPLICANT: Campus Properties, LLC
ZONE: R-2 (Low-Density Multiple Dwelling District)

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Corte Madera Town Council will hold a public hearing to consider the Casa Buena Townhomes project and Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration. The Casa Buena Townhomes project proposes the development of 16 attached townhomes on an approximately 1.23-acre site located at 1421 and 1425 Casa Buena Drive (Assessor’s Parcel Number 033-011-02). The townhomes would consist of four different designs and would vary between two- and three-story units, with units having either 3 or 4 bedroom floor plans. The townhomes would be arranged in 4 rows of 4 homes each accessed off a single driveway. The proposed project includes requests for a use permit, design review and a vesting tentative map for a subdivision of the proposed lot as part of a condominium subdivision map and a request for Density Bonus. The project applicant is requesting an exception to the existing 30-foot height limitation established in the R-2 Low-Density Multiple Dwelling District Regulations (Section 18.08.120 (g) of the Corte Madera Municipal Code) to allow a maximum building height up to 37 feet, 6 inches pursuant to California Government Code Section 65915(d)(2)(A). Additionally, pursuant to California Government Code 65915(e)(1) the applicant is requesting a reduction in the required 35 foot rear yard setback (Section 18.08.120 (e) of the Corte Madera Municipal Code) to allow 25 feet.

Pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act, an Initial Study and Environmental Checklist were prepared for the proposed project. The Initial Study and Environmental Checklist identified potentially significant impacts in the following areas: aesthetics, air quality, biological resources, cultural resources, geology and soils, hydrology and water quality, noise, transportation and traffic, and utilities/service systems. The analysis concluded that potential impacts would be reduced to less than significant with the implementation of mitigation measures, and as a result, a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration has been prepared for Commission consideration with the project at the above referenced public hearing.

The proposed project plans and Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration can be reviewed on the Town of Corte Madera website at, and at the Town of Corte Madera Planning Department, located at 300 Tamalpais Drive, Corte Madera, California, 94925.

All persons interested in the foregoing are invited to appear before the Corte Madera Town Council at the time, day and place mentioned above. If you challenge this project in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this NOTICE, or in written correspondence delivered to the Town of Corte Madera at, or prior to, the public hearing. All written responses will become part of the public record. If you are interested in more information about this application, please contact the Corte Madera Planning Department at 927-5064. Staff reports are usually available by 4:30 p.m. on the Friday before the meeting and may be obtained from the Planning Department, Corte Madera Town Hall, 300 Tamalpais Drive, Corte Madera.

I do hereby certify that the foregoing Notice of Public Hearing was duly processed according to the California Government Code and the Corte Madera Municipal Code.
