Council Approves 2018 Bicycle and Congestion Management Plan

Bikes
Tourist bicycles on Bridgeway
With another tourist bicycle season on the way, the Sausalito City Council approved a Bicycle and Congestion Management Plan for 2018 at its meeting on Tuesday, February 27. The overarching goal of the plan is to make downtown Sausalito a safer and more orderly place during the seasonal influx of bicyclists and pedestrians, most of whom are exploring our town while they wait for a ferry ride back to San Francisco.

The basic elements of the Bicycle and Congestion Management Plan include:
  • Ambassadors directing bicycles at the south gateway to Sausalito and at the intersection of Bridgeway and Princess Street
  • A paid parking lot for bicycles on Tracy Way
  • A bicycle return service that will take bicycles back to San Francisco by truck for a small fee
  • Improved queuing and online reservation services provided by the ferry companies
In approving the 2018 plan, the Council agreed to a contract with Sausalito Bike Return to provide ambassador, bicycle parking, and bicycle return services from March 23 to October 14. Sausalito Bike Return is a private company owned and operated by John and Lisa Scopazzi. In 2017, working under contract with the City, Sausalito Bike Return transported 5,698 bicycles from Sausalito to San Francisco.

Per the contract for 2018, Sausalito Bicycle Return will provide bicycle parking and return services on a daily basis. Ambassador services will be offered seven days a week during the busy summer months of June, July, and August; and three days a week (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) during the other months.

Although safety rather than revenue is the primary goal of the Bicycle and Congestion Management Plan, the contract with Sausalito Bicycle Return is structured such that the City of Sausalito anticipates receiving approximately $25,000 as its share of revenue from bicycle parking and return. The fee for bicycle parking in the Tracy Way lot is expected to be $3 per bike, with $12 as the charge for bicycle return to San Francisco.

Drone Ordinance Becomes Law on March 29

On February 27, the Sausalito City Council adopted a new ordinance regulating the operation of drones (a.k.a. "unmanned aircraft systems") within City limits. The ordinance will become effective on March 29, 2018. Included in the ordinance are the following restrictions on the operation of drones in Sausalito:

  • Drones must always be within the line of sight of the person operating the drone
  • Drones may not be used for audio or video recording where there is a reasonable expectation of privacy
  • Drones may not be operated in such a way as to harass, intimidate, annoy, threaten, or vex another person
  • Drone operators may not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Violators of the new regulations may be subject to fines and confiscation of the offending drone. To report a violation of the ordinance after it becomes effective on March 29, please contact the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170. The ordinance will be enforced on a complaint basis.

Have Coffee with a Cop on March 8

Lt. Bill Fraass at a recent Coffee with a Cop event in Sausalito
Coffee with a Cop provides a great opportunity for members of the community and officers from the Sausalito Police Department to get together on an informal basis to discuss local issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. The next Coffee with a Cop event will take place from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 8 at Firehouse Coffee, 317 Johnson Street. Everyone is welcome.

Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction. Any questions about Coffee with a Cop may be directed to the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170.

News from City Departments

Administration. Call a Ride for Sausalito Seniors (CARSS) was founded in 2015 as a result of the hard work of the City's Age Friendly Task Force. After surveying the community, the task force developed a plan prioritizing the needs of aging residents, and local transportation was at the top of the list. In 2017, CARSS and its team of volunteer drivers provided more than 1,500 rides to residents of Sausalito and the floating homes who are age 60 and older.

Unfortunately, CARSS is running low on volunteer drivers. If you have been thinking about volunteering in Sausalito, this is a great time to start. CARSS requests that volunteers drive a minimum of one four-hour shift per month, or one there-and-back ride to an evening program at the Sausalito Library or another local venue. To start the application process to become a CARSS driver, please call (415) 944-5474 or download an application
