City Council to Consider Ban on Single-Use Plastics

Single-Use Plastics
The sale or distribution of single-use plastics by retail food establishments and non-profit food providers will be banned in Sausalito if the City Council goes forward with a new ordinance recommended by the City's Sustainability Commission.

Single-use plastics covered by the ordinance include plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery like forks and spoons, and food-service ware like to-go containers. Grocery items that are packaged in plastic, such as beverages and condiments, would not be banned.

The ban on single-use plastics will be considered for a first reading by the City Council on May 28. If approved on May 28 and at a second reading on June 11, the ordinance would typically be effective in 30 days. However, the Sustainability Commission is recommending a one year phase-in period. During the phase-in period, the commission proposes to conduct educational campaigns to help businesses adapt to the ban.

More information about the proposed ban on single-use plastics may be found in the staff report for the May 28 City Council meeting. The ban was also discussed and recommended for approval by the City's Legislative Committee at its meeting on March 26, 2019. A video recording of that meeting is available on the City website. The discussion of the proposed ban on single-use plastics is item 2B and begins at the 11:00 mark.

Wireless Ordinance on Agenda of May 28 Council Meeting

Map of Wireless Facilities

At its meeting on Tuesday, May 28, the City Council will consider changes to Sausalito's zoning ordinance governing wireless telecommunications facilities. The changes are in response to state and federal laws that limit the ability of municipalities to regulate the deployment of telecommunications equipment like small-cell wireless nodes.

The zoning ordinance that will be considered by the City Council includes the following changes and additions to the existing ordinance, among others:
  • The acknowledgement that, in accordance with state and federal law, the ordinance is not intended to inhibit the provision of wireless telecommunication service, nor is it intended to deny any request based on the environmental and/or health effects of radio frequency emissions
  • The stipulation that all non-antenna equipment associated with a wireless telecommunication facility must be placed underground to the extent feasible
  • The stipulation that when above-ground is the only feasible location for a particular type of equipment, and the equipment cannot be pole-mounted, such equipment shall be enclosed within a structure, shall not exceed a height of 5 feet and total footprint of 15 square feet, and shall be screened and camouflaged to the fullest extent possible
  • The stipulation that each component of a wireless facility shall be located so as not to cause any physical or visual obstruction to pedestrian or vehicular traffic, inconvenience to the public's use of a right-of-way, or create safety hazards
  • The stipulation that each component of a wireless telecommunication facility shall be located so as not to obstruct public views
  • The stipulation that most alterations to existing wireless telecommunications facilities or requests for a new carrier to be established at an existing facility be reviewed at a staff level rather than at a public meeting of the Planning Commission (in accordance with new federal regulations)
  • The establishment of fees for small cell wireless facilities located in the public right-of-way
The changes that are being considered by the City Council are based on recommendations from the Planning Commission, which considered the issue at its meeting on May 15, 2019. A video recording of the May 15 meeting is available on the City website. The Wireless Communication Standards and Criteria Update is item 5B of the meeting and begins at the 1:28:00 mark.

Additional information about the changes to the zoning ordinance governing wireless telecommunications facilities may be found in the staff report to the City Council and in supporting documents for item 7B on the meeting agenda for May 28. If the changes to the zoning ordinance are approved on May 28, a second reading is expected to take place at the City Council meeting on June 11. If the second reading is approved, the revised ordinance will go into effect 30 days later.

Any questions about the City's regulations governing telecommunications facilities may be directed to Community Development Director Lilly Whalen at lwhalen@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4133.

Fire District's Vegetation Management Program Begins July 1

Branches at the Curbside for a Chipper Day
Branches at the curbside for a chipper day in Mill Valley
On July 1, the Southern Marin Fire Protection District will begin the first year of a new Vegetation Management Program with an annual budget of $460,000. The program is funded with proceeds from Measure U, a $200 parcel tax approved by voters in November 2018 to improve local emergency services.

The goal of the Vegetation Management Program is to reduce the amount of fuel available to a wildfire. By removing dead and excess vegetation, the likelihood of a catastrophic fire is significantly diminished. A similar program in Mill Valley removes between 300 and 600 tons of vegetation per year.

The Southern Marin Fire Protection District consists of four zones: the City of Sausalito, Tam Valley, Homestead, and Strawberry. Under the Vegetation Management Program, fuel reduction work will be performed on a rotating basis in one zone per month. Sausalito is the only incorporated jurisdiction within the district; the other three zones are administered by Marin County.

Fuel reduction initiatives include the following:
  • Road Clearing. Road clearing consists of trimming tree branches over roadways, clearing vegetation around fire hydrants, and removing ladder fuels and encroaching vegetation from roadsides and sidewalks. Prior to clearing, an informational letter will be mailed to affected residents.
  • Tree Removal. Tree removals occur on open space parcels and along rights of way. Trees will be marked because they are dead or dying, encroach on roadways, or pose a fall or fire hazard to overhead power lines or private property. Due to the flammability characteristics of eucalyptus trees, priority will be given for their removal. 
  • Chipper Programs. Small- and large-scale chipper programs will be offered under the Vegetation Management Program. Small-scale chipper projects require at least three households to participate. Residents call or email the district with a date they would like to have the chipper crew come to their neighborhood. Large-scale chipper projects involve making the chipper available to groups of streets on a rotating schedule. 
  • Fuel Breaks. The district will partner with landowners such as the National Park Service and state and county parks in the creation of wide-area fuel breaks. The primary benefit of this project is the removal of highly flammable vegetation. A secondary benefit is the restoration of native plant species that predate the arrival of invasive plants like scotch broom and acacia.
  • Fuel Reduction on City/County Land. The City of Sausalito and Marin County own many parcels that require vegetation management. Fuel reduction work on these parcels will reduce the fire threat to adjacent homeowners.
Other programs funded by Measure U will include public education initiatives, striping projects to ensure that street parking does not interfere with the passage of emergency vehicles, and evacuation drills. The first evacuation drill in Sausalito is scheduled for July 27, 2019, for residents of the north end of town. Notices about the drill will be mailed to all residents in the evacuation zone in advance of July 27, and information will also be available in Sausalito Currents and on the City website.

Any questions about the Vegetation Management Program or any of the initiatives within the program may be directed to Battalion Chief Scott Barnes at sbarnes@smfd.org.

Invasives: More Than Just Bugs and Blooms. Invasive plants brought in from other parts of the world represent a significant challenge to the natural environment of our home landscapes in Marin. When a gardener thinks of an "exotic invasive," it is usually an insect or a plant. These are, indeed, awful threats, but there are exotic invasive diseases, aquatics, and mammals that also pose important threats to our native species and environments. Based on research done by the UC Cooperative Extension staff, Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli will discuss some examples of these alien threats and what California is doing to deal with them. This program in the City Hall Council Chambers on Thursday, May 30 at 7:00 p.m. is co-sponsored by Sausalito Beautiful and the Sausalito Library.

Violin and Cello Concert. A few months ago, Lish, a member of the staff at Spaulding Marine Center, was going through the archives and found a trove of Myron Spaulding's old sheet music from when he played with the San Francisco Symphony. Lish called a concert violinist friend to come have a look, and soon the sound of violin was echoing through the boathouse. "Myron must have been good," the violinist said, "because this stuff is really hard." Thus was born our musical tribute to Myron Spaulding. On Friday, May 31 at 5:00 p.m., violinist Benjamin Bregmen and cellist Leo Baluk will perform several pieces from Myron's archives, selections of Bach, and a selection of music from the 1920s. Donations appreciated to support our musicians. Spaulding Marine Center is located at 600 Gate 5 Road.
