Belvedere deems Mallard Pointe plan incomplete
The city of Belvedere says it needs more information about dozens of aspects of a plan to redevelop the private Mallard Pointe community between the lagoon and City Hall — and that the 42-unit complex will need more affordable units to qualify for key waivers on which the project relies.
Director of Planning and Building Irene Borba notified developer Mallard Pointe 1951 LLC on Feb. 23 that the application was deemed incomplete, two days shy of the 30-day deadline the city had to review the plans after they were first submitted Jan. 26. The developer now has three months, until May 25, to resubmit its plan to the city, which would kick off another 30-day review to determine completeness.
According to the city, in addition to containing an inadequate number of affordable units, the plans fail to include a comprehensive resident-relocation plan, needs more photo simulations and a story-pole plan and must address issues raised by several outside organizations, including the Belvedere Lagoon Property Owners Association, the Marin Municipal Water District and Sanitary District No. 5 of Marin.
