Air Quality Advisory Due to Smoke from the Camp Fire

Current Air Quality
The air quality reading from AirNow.gov at noon on Friday, November 9
Air quality in Sausalito and other parts of the Bay Area may reach unhealthy levels this weekend due to drift smoke from the Camp Fire in Butte County. An Air Quality Advisory is in effect through Monday, November 12.

For updated smoke advisories, visit the website of the Bay Area Air Quality Management District. For current air quality data, visit AirNow.gov and input your location. For forecasts, Spare the Air maintains a five-day forecast for five reporting zones in the greater Bay Area. Sausalito's zone is Coast and Central Bay. 

Wildfire smoke is a mixture of gases and fine particles from burning trees and other plant materials. This smoke can hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases. If the smell of smoke is present, protect your health by avoiding exposure. If possible, stay inside with windows and doors closed until smoke levels subside. Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to recirculate the interior air. Elderly persons, children, and individuals with respiratory illnesses are particularly susceptible to elevated air pollution levels and should take extra precautions to avoid exposure.

Council to Consider Mobile Shower Pilot Program on November 13

Mobile Showers
A mobile showers trailer from Marin Mobile Care
At its meeting on Tuesday, November 13, the City Council will consider a 6-month pilot program to offer mobile shower service on a limited basis in Sausalito. The service would be provided using a mobile shower trailer staffed by Marin Mobile Care, a nonprofit operation affiliated with the Downtown Streets Team.

The mobile showers item is scheduled to begin at approximately 7:25 p.m. on November 13 in the City Hall Council Chambers. The recommendation from City staff is for the service to be offered between 6:00 and 9:00 a.m. on two weekdays per week, with one day at Marinship Park and one day at the City Hall parking lot.

The goal of the mobile shower service in Sausalito would be to provide a basic need for the homeless and waterfront communities, while also providing outreach that connects people with resources like counseling, medical care, and employment and housing opportunities. Funding for the service would be covered by the City of Sausalito's $11,540 annual contribution to a Community Homeless Fund created by the Marin County Council of Mayors and Councilmembers.

At the direction of the City Council, a survey is currently underway on the City's Open City Hall website to collect community input on the proposed mobile shower service. As of Thursday, November 8, the results to the question "Do you support a mobile shower service in Sausalito?" were as follows:

Registered users
Yes: 118 (71.1%)
No: 48 (28.9%)

Unregistered users
Yes: 105 (47.9%)
No: 114 (52.1%)

All users
Yes: 223 (57.9%)
No: 162 (42.1%)

Registered users are those who create an Open City Hall account with an email address and password. An account has to be confirmed via the email address. Registered users self-identify their residence. Unregistered users take the survey without registering or verifying with an email address. These users receive a "cookie" in their web browser to discourage them from taking the survey multiple times.

For additional data, the City also conducted a poll using Nextdoor, a social networking service for neighborhoods. Nextdoor claims to have 4,709 members within Sausalito, all of whom have been verified either by postcard or by credit card or telephone billing address. As of Thursday, November 8, the results on Nextdoor to the question "Do you support a mobile shower service in Sausalito?" were as follows:

Yes: 88 (65.7%)
No: 46 (34.3%)

Any questions or comments about the proposed mobile shower service may be directed to Lieutenant Bill Fraass of the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170 or bfraass@sausalito.gov. The survey on the City website also provides an opportunity to leave comments.

What's Happening on the Sausalito Anchorage?

Anchorage
A debris vessel on the Sausalito anchorage
The City Council will receive an update on the Sausalito Police Department's Waterfront Management Plan at its meeting on Tuesday, November 13. The executive director of the Richardson's Bay Regional Association (RBRA) will also provide an update on RBRA activities outside of Sausalito waters. Anyone interested in learning about the past, present, and future of enforcement on the Sausalito anchorage is encouraged to attend the meeting or watch the live stream on the City website. The item is expected to begin at approximately 8:25 p.m.

As approved by the City Council in June 2017, the highest priorities of the Waterfront Management Plan are the following:
  • Remove marine debris vessels from Sausalito waters
  • Remove unoccupied vessels used as storage
  • Issue citations to unregistered vessels and remove vessels when registration is expired by more than one year
  • Address the issue of individuals living on vessels who are a danger to themselves or others and work with other agencies to assist in getting these individuals and their vessels off the water
The Sausalito Police Department has removed 28 marine debris vessels since the Waterfront Management Plan began in 2017. Marine debris vessels are regulated by Sausalito City Ordinance 16.04.040.

On November 2, 2018, the Sausalito Police Department began enforcing Sausalito City Ordinance 16.04.100 as it relates to unoccupied vessels used as storage. Six unoccupied vessels were posted with notices saying that they were in violation of the ordinance and would be impounded if not removed from Sausalito waters. On November 5 and 6, officers impounded three of the six vessels for being moored or anchored in excess of 72 hours.

In other news related to the Sausalito anchorage, two annual events will take place over the next week:
  • On Tuesday, November 13 from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m. in Marinship Park, the Sausalito Police Department will host its annual Homeless Outreach Event for Sausalito's anchor-out and homeless communities. Flu shots and health exams will be provided by nursing students from UC San Francisco. Marin Health and Human Services will offer clothing, toiletries, and emergency supplies. The Marin Humane Society will supply dog leashes, pet food, and clothing for animals of all sorts. Marin Mobile Care will bring a mobile shower trailer, and the mobile dental van from the Marin City Health & Wellness Center will also be on site. Lunch will be provided by Sean Saylor of Saylor's Restaurant.
  • On Friday, November 16, the Sausalito Police Department, the Marin County Sheriff's Office, the Richardson Bay Regional Agency, and Marin County Health and Human Services will conduct a Trash Collection Event for vessels on Richardson Bay. The primary goals of the event are to help individuals to remove debris from their vessels before winter, to assist individuals in making their vessels compliant with nuisance and debris ordinances, and to make contact with individuals who may be interested in obtaining housing on land.
Any questions about the Waterfront Management Plan or the Trash Collection Event may be directed to Lieutenant Bill Fraass at bfraass@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4170. Any questions about the Homeless Outreach Event may be directed to Lieutenant Stacie Gregory at sgregory@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4170.

Sausalito Wins Award for Home Adaptation Grant Program

WHO Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities
A map showing members of the WHO Global Network for Age-friendly Cities and Communities
The City of Sausalito was one of three winners of a worldwide competition on aging in place sponsored by the World Health Organization's Global Network for Age-Friendly Cities and Communities.

Sausalito won the Innovation@Home award for its Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program, which was launched in March 2018 for Sausalito residents age 60 and older. Developed by the City's Age Friendly Task Force in collaboration with the Community Development Department, the program offers reduced-fee or no-cost building permits for home modifications like entry ramps and handrails. Over 30% of Sausalito residents are age 60 or older, and most of Sausalito's dwellings are built on multiple levels, creating difficulties and additional risks for older adults.

Sausalito's Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program served as a model for California State Assembly Bill 2132, which was signed by Governor Jerry Brown in September 2018 and authorizes cities and counties throughout California to make similar changes to their building permit policies for older adults.

Age Friendly Sausalito Chair Sybil Boutilier was presented with the Innovation@Home award at the World Health Organization's Technical Meeting on Aging in Place, which was held in Quebec City, Canada, in October 2018. The other two cities to receive the award were Porto, Portugal and Barcelona, Spain.

Any questions about the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program may be directed to the Building Division of the Community Development Department at (415) 289-4128.
