Objective Design & Development Standards - Multifamily Projects
Larkspur has adopted Objective Design and Development Standards for multifamily and mixed-use residential development. The City has a subjective and discretionary design review process to assure high-quality development that fits in with varied neighborhoods. However, state housing law, including the Housing Accountability Act, now requires Larkspur to have objective zoning standards and streamlined review and approval procedures. The objective standards do not require interpretation and provide a review and approval process for multi-family and mixed-use development projects.
