Ferry Landing Meeting
The view from the audience during the City Council meeting on September 12
The Sausalito City Council met at IDESST Hall on Tuesday, September 12, to consider the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District's revised plans to remove the existing Sausalito ferry landing and build a new ferry landing. The staff report from the meeting is available on the City website, as is a complete video recording.

At the September 12 meeting, the City Council received presentations on the revised ferry landing project plans from City staff and District staff, along with public comment from twenty-two individuals.

Revised Play Structure Story Poles at Southview Park

Southview Park story poles
Story poles depicting the size and location of the new play structure proposed for Southview Park
Story poles marking the outline of a proposed playground structure are now on display in Southview Park. The poles were erected last week in preparation for a meeting of the Planning Commission on Wednesday, September 20.

This is the second round of story poles in Southview Park. A different playground structure was presented to the Planning Commission on May 31 of this year. The Planning Commission rejected that proposal and requested a structure with a lower profile. 

The structure in the revised proposal is 13.75 feet tall, which is approximately 1.5 feet more than the existing structure. The proposed structure offers a variety of features for children to climb and explore, including a "lookout" at the top and a pair of belt swings.

Residents are encouraged visit Southview Park to see the story poles. If you have an opinion on the revised proposal, please attend the Planning Commission meeting on Wednesday, September 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers at City Hall.

For more information, contact Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at mlangford@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4126.

Fire District Awarded Federal Grant for New Fireboat

Fireboat Liberty
Fireboat Liberty, which will be replaced by a new state-of-the-art fireboat
On September 1, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced the recipients of the 2017 Port Security Grant Program. Among the grants was an award of $734,522 to the Southern Marin Fire Protection District for the purchase of a new state-of-the-art fireboat. The new vessel will replace Fireboat Liberty, which has been in service since 2004.

Southern Marin Fire has maintained, operated, and staffed a fireboat for the past thirty-five years. As a result, we have become one of the most relied upon government agencies for marine emergency responses throughout the San Francisco Bay region. Fireboat Liberty has served Sausalito and the surrounding area well, but is aging rapidly in the saltwater environment and has increasingly been out of service for repairs.
 
In awarding the grant, FEMA recognized the importance of maintaining a critical piece of equipment that protects one of the world's most recognizable landmarks, the Golden Gate Bridge. In addition to the area beneath the bridge, the service area of Southern Marin Fire includes the Sausalito ferry terminal, the waterfront sewer treatment plant of the Sausalito-Marin City Sanitary District, local restaurants on piers above the waterline, and hundreds of boats in marinas and on the Richardson Bay anchorage.

In addition to significantly improved firefighting capabilities, the new boat will be equipped with radiation detectors, side-scan sonar, infrared cameras, encrypted communication systems, rescue equipment, and scuba gear. The new vessel will allow Southern Marin Fire to continue providing exceptional marine response services to the City of Sausalito and our regional partners.

Hints of Grace: The Rebirth of FredaIn 1996, the 32-foot-long wooden sloop Freda turned one hundred and eleven years old. Her worn, distorted hull was so rotted that she needed more than just a restoration to be safely returned to active sailing. "Hints of Grace" is the technical and aesthetic account of the Arques School of Traditional Boatbuilding’s decade-long project of rebuilding Freda from the keel up. On Friday, October 6 at 7:00 p.m. inside the Sausalito Library, the school's director, Bob Darr, will explore the great and small labors of Freda’s rebirth, from shaping timbers to hand-planing, sanding, and painting. Bob came of age in the mid-1960s on his father's schooners, where he was captivated by the beauty of Grace, a San Francisco pilot schooner named after the daughter of sugar-magnate Adolph Spreckels. Sailing the South Seas on traditional gaff-rigged schooners inspired Bob to spend his adult life designing and building traditional wooden boats.
