Tiburon nears adoption of controversial property rezoning

Tiburon is one step closer to rezoning a controversial Paradise Drive property that’s at the center of neighbors’ lawsuit against the town, but also must be completed by Jan. 31 to fend off penalties from the state.

The Town Council voted 4-0, with Councilmember Isaac Nikfar abstaining, at its Nov. 15 meeting to approve rezoning to accommodate about 93 housing units at 4576 Paradise Drive, as well as design standards for multifamily hillside housing that would apply to any development there and at a vacant plot at Reed Elementary School, which can accommodate about 58 workforce units.

A required second vote to formally adopt the rules is expected to be on the council’s Dec. 6 meeting agenda, with the new zoning and objective design and development standards then taking effect 30 days later. The votes do not approve development plans for either site, and none have been submitted to the town for consideration.
