Pink Patches for Breast Cancer Awareness

Pink Patches
Sausalito Police employees display their pink patches
Sausalito Police Department employees are wearing pink patches for the month of October in support of breast cancer awareness. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. 

In October 2015, the Pink Patch Project was launched at the Irwindale Police Department. The project's goals are to bring public awareness to breast cancer and support research combating the disease. Today, hundreds of police departments around the country are wearing their own pink patch to show their support. 

Pink patches from the Sausalito Police Department are now available for sale, with proceeds going to Zero Breast Cancer of Marin. If you wish to purchase a pink patch from the Sausalito Police Association, please contact Officer Christina Kazarian at ckazarian@sausalito.gov.

New Gangway for Turney Street Dock Arrives October 10

Gangway and Truck
A gangway similar to the one that will be delivered to Sausalito on October 10
The delivery of a new eighty-foot gangway to the Turney Street intersection of Bridgeway in the early morning of Tuesday, October 10, is likely to create traffic disturbances for Sausalito residents traveling through the area. The delivery by Hallsten Marine is scheduled to take place between 2:00 and 4:00 a.m. on October 10 and will require parking restrictions, traffic flagging, and short-term lane closures between the Highway 101 off-ramp at the north end of town and Turney Street. The work is scheduled for the early morning hours to minimize the disruption to traffic.

A ban on overnight parking will be posted and enforced on Turney Street between Bridgeway and Caledonia Street, and at 1221 Bridgeway. The restrictions will be in effect from 9:00 p.m. on Monday, October 9 through 9:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 10. 
 
On the afternoon of October 10, Hallsten Marine will back the tractor-trailer from Bridgeway onto the Turney Street Boat Ramp to unload the gangway. If you live or work near the Turney Street intersection with Bridgeway, please expect noise from the truck's back-up alarm and air brakes. The City of Sausalito will make every effort to minimize noise and inconvenience from the work.
 
The installation of the new gangway is the final phase of a two-phase project to make the Turney Street Boat Ramp, gangway, and "dinghy dock" more accessible in all tide conditions. The project brings the facilities into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and the California Building Code. Please contact Jill Barnes, Department of Public Works Project Manager at (415) 905-0680 or jbarnes@sausalito.gov if you have any questions about the project.
