PETITION IN OPPOSITION TO
PROPOSED BLITHEDALE TERRACE PROJECT
(rendering of proposed development at 575 E. Blithedale -
the vacant lot just west of Camino Alto)
To: Mill Valley Planning Commission and City Council
From: Mill Valley Residents
Re: Proposed Blithedale Terrace Project
We, the undersigned residents of Mill Valley, hereby submit this petition requesting that you a) reject the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the proposed development of 20 residential units at 575 East Blithedale Avenue known as Blithedale Terrace; b) deny the application for a General Plan amendment to rezone the site for inappropriate density; and c) ultimately reject the project itself unless it is downsized to be consistent with the character of the surrounding neighborhoods and the scale of the neighboring residential structures.
Developer Phil Richardson has applied to the City for approval of a General Plan Amendment which includes rezoning of the parcel, a Tentative Subdivision Map, and Design Review to construct 20 attached residential units up to three stories in height (with a total elevation of 80 feet above street level due to the steepness of the slope) on a 1.2 acre site northwest of the intersection of East Blithedale Avenue and Camino Alto (Parcel #30-021-47).
In order to accommodate residential construction, the lot would have to be rezoned from its current designation as PA – Professional Administrative Office to a Planned Development (PD) designation.
We believe the FEIR should be rejected and the request for rezoning denied because:
THEREFORE, we the undersigned do respectfully request that the Planning Commission and the City Council reject the FEIR, deny the applicant’s proposal for the rezoning of the property, and ultimately reject the proposed project itself as wholly inappropriate for the site.
