Hotel Floor Area Bonus Ordinance

The Town of Corte Madera has begun the process of developing possible amendments to the Zoning Ordinance amending the permitted Floor Area Ratio for hotel uses in C-2, C-3, C-4, and MX-1 Zoning Districts, through the creation of a Floor Area Bonus.  The proposed Ordinance would establish a framework for permitting a floor area bonus for hotel development on lots greater than one acre in size within the C-2, C-3, C-4, or MX-1 zoning districts provided that specific conditions and criteria related to site planning and design, environmental sustainability, community integration, and the public realm are met.  The bonus would permit up to a maximum of .70 FAR where the existing maximum is .34 FAR.
