Council Delays Discussion of Regulations on Short-Term Rentals

City Council
A frame from the video recording of the City Council meeting on October 30
Referring to a large volume of recent correspondence from residents and "several legal challenges," Sausalito Mayor Joan Cox made a motion at the beginning of the City Council meeting on October 30 to delay the planned discussion of regulations on short-term rentals. Mayor Cox noted that the additional time would be "to allow [City] staff an opportunity to carefully evaluate and assess the legal issues... and so that the members of the City Council can weigh in and provide opinions with full information." The motion was unanimously approved by the Council.

Links to the correspondence received by the City Council, also known as "late mail," may be found under item 6B on the agenda for the October 30 meeting. More information about the regulations and the proposed pilot program that had been scheduled for discussion at the meeting may be found in this article from last week's edition of Sausalito Currents and in the staff report for the meeting.

Look for announcements in Sausalito Currents and on the City website when a new date has been set for City Council consideration of short-term rental regulations. Any questions, additional correspondence, or requests to receive email notice of upcoming meetings related to short-term rentals may be directed to Community Development Director Lilly Whalen at lwhalen@sausalito.gov.

Ferry Landing Landside Improvements

Ferry Landing Landside Improvements
An illustration of project priorities from the update on October 30
At its meeting on October 30, the City Council received a status update on the visioning phase of a project to make landside improvements to the Sausalito ferry landing. Intended to complement the waterside improvements to the ramp and float of the ferry landing, the landside work focuses on improving bicycle, pedestrian, and vehicle circulation in the surrounding areas, as well as improving public access to the waterfront.

The landside project has $2.5 million in funding, which includes a $2.4 million grant from the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District and an appropriation of $100,000 from the City of Sausalito. 

The status update on landside improvements was presented by architect Robert Hayes of Robert Hayes + Associates, the City's primary consultant on the project. Hayes presented a minimum project that would satisfy bridge district grant requirements, as well as two enhanced designs that introduce additional improvements beyond the minimum. The estimated cost of the minimum project is $2.5 million. As part of the presentation, John Eberle of the bridge district also reviewed the project schedule for waterside improvements.

The enhanced landside designs were presented to get feedback from the City Council and to kick off a community engagement phase that will ask residents and commuters to share their vision of landside improvements. The first of a series of public workshops is tentatively scheduled for Saturday, January 19, 2019. Additional details on upcoming workshops, along with other opportunities for public input on the project, will be published in future editions of Sausalito Currents.

Any questions or comments about ferry landing landside improvements may be directed to Jonathon Goldman, Public Works Director and City Engineer, at (415) 289-4176 or jgoldman@sausalito.gov.

Council Extends Interim Urgency Ordinance on Marijuana

Marijuana Ordinance
A slide from the marijuana presentation at the October 30 City Council meeting
The Sausalito City Council voted on October 30 to extend the City's interim urgency marijuana ordinance through November 24, 2019. The interim urgency ordinance was originally passed in November 2017 and extended for the first time in January 2018. Without specific local regulations in place as of January 1, 2018, commercial marijuana businesses would have been allowed in Sausalito without any local regulation.

According to the interim urgency ordinance now in effect in Sausalito:
  • Delivery of medical and recreational marijuana into Sausalito is allowed
  • Other commercial activity such as retail sales, dispensaries, and distribution centers are prohibited
  • All businesses conducting cannabis-related deliveries into Sausalito must register or notify the City
  • Indoor cultivation for personal use is restricted to six or fewer adult plants
  • Outdoor marijuana cultivation is prohibited
The extension of the urgency ordinance gives the City Council additional time to consider permanent marijuana regulations. Among the modifications discussed by the Council on October 30 was the possibility of allowing commercial marijuana operations like manufacturing facilities and non-storefront retail operations. A local ballot measure such as San Rafael's Measure G would need to pass in order to tax marijuana businesses beyond Sausalito's existing business license and sales taxes.

Any questions or comments about marijuana regulations in Sausalito may be directed to Senior Planner Calvin Chan at cchan@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4129. Announcements of upcoming public meetings and workshops related to permanent marijuana regulations in Sausalito will appear in Sausalito Currents and on the City website.

The City's MLK Athletic Field Improvement Project will get underway on Saturday, November 3. The field is located on the City's MLK Campus at the north end of Sausalito. Major construction will be performed by Maggiora & Ghilotti, which was awarded a contract by the City Council on October 30 after a competitive bidding process.

The project includes the following elements:
  • Removing existing trees
  • Stripping and stockpiling the field's existing topsoil for reuse
  • Regrading the field to improve drainage
  • Constructing new drainage facilities
  • Adding an asphalt path around the perimeter of the field, with a length of approximately ⅓ mile
  • Creating a soccer pitch, a softball field, and a concrete pad for an outdoor gym
  • Placing a new gate in the fence along Coloma Street to facilitate vehicle access when the field acts as a temporary parking lot for special events
  • Installing a new irrigation system
  • Planting new grass
During construction, the field will be fenced off to the public. If work proceeds without complications, the field will reopen for public use in summer 2019.
