Sausalito Boulevard

The stability of the hillside above Sausalito Boulevard that released more than 3,500 cubic yards of earth and debris on February 14 continues to be a top priority for the City of Sausalito and the National Park Service. Over the past week, the following steps have been taken to help stabilize the site:
  • The top of the mudslide area above Sausalito Boulevard was covered with plastic sheeting to prevent additional earth from breaking loose.
  • Straw wattles were placed along the top of the slide to redirect water away from the mudslide area.
  • Arborists removed three precariously located trees above Sausalito Boulevard.
  • K-rail cement barriers were installed along the inner and outer perimeter of Sausalito Boulevard in the slide area. The barriers will help catch any additional slide material on the upslope side and, when the roadway reopens, protect pedestrians and motorists on the downslope side. 
  • Geotechnical engineers from the City of Sausalito and the National Park Service conducted inspections of the slide area for new signs of instability.
  • Sandbags were placed on Sausalito Boulevard to help redirect water runoff from the hillside down the roadway and away from the debris field below.
  • Specialists from the U.S. Geological Survey began a laser survey of the land features. The survey will help inform longer-term solutions for stabilizing the hillside.
  • The Sausalito Police Department, Southern Marin Fire, and the Department of Public Works conducted extra patrols of Sausalito Boulevard during the recent rainstorm of February 25 to 27. No additional debris or soil came down onto the roadway from the hillside.
Abbot Chambers, the City's Director of Communications, presented a report and status update on the mudslide at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, February 26. The presentation included a timeline of events from February 14, recordings of 9-1-1 calls, drone video taken on the day of the disaster, a report on the status of the debris pile on Crescent Avenue, and an update on the City's efforts to get residents back into the homes that remain "red-tagged" in the aftermath of the mudslide. A video recording of the presentation may be found on the City website.

Questions from residents affected by the mudslide on February 14 may be directed to the following dedicated phone line at the Sausalito Police Department: (415) 289-4151. Please leave a detailed message. The police department will put you in contact with the City staff member best able to answer your questions. The latest updates on the mudslide area can be found on the City of Sausalito website.

Fallen Tree

Sausalito was prepared for the worst from another "atmospheric river" storm that began on Monday, February 25 and continued through Wednesday, February 27. Fortunately, few incidents were reported despite high winds and more than 3.5 inches of rain.
  • Officers of the Sausalito Police Department removed a few small tree branches and wind-blown garbage cans from City streets.
  • The Public Works Department reported minor sloughing off of chert and soil on Edwards Avenue, a typical occurrence during the rainy season.
  • Fireboat Liberty responded to a report of a boat dragging anchor on Richardson Bay, but the occupant declined assistance.
  • More earth movement occurred at the site of a previous mudslide at 330 Ebbtide Avenue.
  • A tree fell and obstructed the roadway in the 600 block of Sausalito Boulevard. Southern Marin Fire was able to clear the road with the assistance of traffic control from the Sausalito Police. The Public Works Department completed the job by chipping branches and hauling away the stump and pieces of the trunk.
More rain is expected over the next week, according to the National Weather Service. Rain is forecast to start late Friday and continue through the weekend, with the possibility of up to 1.5 inches of accumulated precipitation. An "atmospheric river" storm is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, March 5 and 6, with possible accumulation of 2 to 3 inches of rain and winds out of the south gusting to 30 mph. The National Weather Service is also forecasting continued stormy weather throughout the month of March.

A Visit with Leon Huntting

Leon Huntting
Leon Huntting
"Had enough?" This call for change by Leon Huntting propelled him to his 1982 election to the Sausalito City Council. After 48 years in Sausalito, Leon has not had enough of the city he loves.

Leon grew up in Los Gatos in an era when "school didn't start until the prunes were picked." In high school, he played football against future Dallas Cowboys quarterback Craig Morton and also participated in basketball, track, and baseball. He was an Eagle Scout and student body vice president. He still has the bearing of an All-American athlete.

Leon met his wife Sally in an acting class at Los Gatos High School, and they have been married 55 years. Sally has been active in philanthropy throughout her life and is a community leader in her own right. Leon and Sally had been renting in San Francisco when, in 1970, Sally told him she was interested in buying a home in Sausalito. Leon's initial reaction was, "I am not going north." 

Leon holds a degree in business from Santa Clara University, attended two years of law school, and went on to a successful career in financial services. He was busy with his professional career and did not get involved in Sausalito politics during his first 10 years here. His first foray into politics was sparked by his concern about the impact that commercial development was having on the character of the community.

In 1981, Leon attended his first City Council meeting, about a proposed hotel on Bridgeway. He says he's always been a "sit in the front row person" and spoke out against the project. Velma Gamble, a longtime resident, liked what he said and offered to be his campaign manager if he ran for City Council. He won and was on the Council from 1982 to 1986. Protection of Sausalito's community character has been a theme of his ever since.

During his time on the Council, Leon served as mayor pro tem, founded the Sausalito Sister City program with Sakaide, Japan, and represented Marin County on the executive board of the Association of Bay Area Governments. His accomplishments as a Councilmember include leading the effort to stop office construction on the north end of town, helping arrange the purchase of the MLK Campus by the City of Sausalito, and helping to get the Napa Street pier approved for waterfront residence. 

Leon is a lifelong runner and has found time to write poetry and a novel. He remains active in local affairs and in recent years has served as the chairman of the Butte Street Task Force and as a juror on the Marin County Civil Grand Jury. He has also been active in the Ice House Plaza project now under construction in downtown Sausalito. Leon's guiding light remains to "preserve the character of our community, which includes the people, diversity, and natural beauty."

This is another installment in a regular series of articles about longtime Sausalito residents who have made an impact on our town. This is the first article in the series written by Tom Theodores. Previous articles may be found on the Age Friendly Sausalito website. Age Friendly Sausalito is a task force of the Sausalito City Council dedicated to advancing Sausalito as an age-friendly city so that its residents can actively age in place.

The Houseboat War That Didn't Happen. In the midst of the Houseboat Wars of the mid-70s, when boat dwellers were laying down in front of bulldozers to stop a developer from destroying their community, one group of citizens chose to envision and work towards what they wanted, rather than fight what they didn't want. The result was the design and creation of the only neighborhood and dock that was constructed without a fight — an integrated community called the South 40.

Enid Foster: Sausalito's Greatest Forgotten Artist. In 1958, new Sausalito residents Allan and Carol Hayes met Enid Foster when they bought one of her paintings. As their friendship developed, Enid introduced Allan and Carol to the thriving Sausalito art colony that revolved around her. Enid had been an internationally respected artist before 1920, but the critics, curators, and gallery owners of the 1960s saw her only as the town character, an amusing eccentric who made irrelevant art. Today, that "irrelevant art" dazzles us with its vitality, freshness, and originality. This special presentation by Allan Hayes will be held inside the Sausalito Library at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, March 29. The program will be followed by an opening reception for a show of selected works by Enid Foster in the exhibit room of the Sausalito Historical Society. Allan and Carol's new book about Enid Foster will be available for purchase.
