On July 9, 2020, the City of Mill Valley Planning Division received a preliminary application for a mixed-use housing development project at 575 East Blithedale Avenue. The proposal, referred to as “Richardson Terrace,” includes 25 residential units and 2,000 square feet of ground floor office space on a 1.2-acre site.
The preliminary application is currently under review by City staff to determine whether it is compliant with the preliminary application checklist established under Senate Bill 330 (California Gov. Code section 65941.1). The City cannot require submission of additional information in a preliminary application, beyond the basic project information expressly required by state law. If the preliminary application meets state law requirements, the applicant will have 180 days (or until January 5, 2021) to submit a full development application for the mixed-use housing project. Once a full application is submitted, the project will undergo a completeness review by staff, as well as environmental review.
Public hearings will be scheduled to consider the mixed-use project once the application materials are determined to be complete and environmental review has been conducted.
Planning staff will continue to provide updates to the community on the proposed project through e-mail notifications and updates to the project webpage.
