Eighty Volunteers Plant Trees and Shrubs at MLK Athletic Field

Eighty volunteers of all ages planted 94 trees and shrubs at the MLK Athletic Field on Saturday, October 12 as part of the first phase of tree planting at MLK Park. The project was organized by local nonprofit Sausalito Beautiful in conjunction with the Parks and Recreation Department.

Members of the public and volunteers from Sausalito Beautiful were joined in the effort by representatives from the City Council, the Planning Commission, the Parks and Recreation Commission, the Lions Club, the Rotary Club, the Sausalito Woman's Club, Southern Marin Fire, and the Cub Scouts. Area businesses that contributed to the project included Bay Cities Refuse, Goodman Building Supply, GSI Landscaping, and Bartlett Tree Experts.

In addition to beautifying MLK Park, the new trees and shrubs will muffle sound, soak up excess rainwater, provide shade on sunny days, help stabilize the soil, and act as a windbreak. Species planted include Chinese elms, London plane trees, paperbark tea trees, ginkgos, cork oaks, weeping willows, arroyo willows, and California lilacs.

Phase one of the planting project at the MLK Athletic Field will be completed once an additional 14 trees are planted by the City's landscaping crew. All of the trees in the first phase are being planted on the periphery of the athletic field, outside of the walking path that encircles the field. The plan is to eventually plant approximately 40 more trees inside the walking path, in locations that don't get in the way of players using the athletic field.

Any questions about the tree planting project may be directed to Lise Ciolino of Sausalito Beautiful at lise@sausalitobeautiful.org or Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at mlangford@sausalito.gov.

Mudflow Debris Field

The removal of debris from the site of the February 14 mudflow in Hurricane Gulch is on track to be completed by early November 2019. Removal work began on September 30. To date, City contractor Resource Environmental has hauled away 950 tons of soil, wood, and other debris.

At this point in the project, Crescent Avenue has been cleared, and crews are working to remove debris from the slopes above and below Crescent. Work hours are 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Monday through Thursday.

Inspectors continue to operate at the mudflow site to identify potential contaminants, supervise the handling of debris, and implement abatement measures. All air quality reports from monitoring equipment along the perimeter of the work area have been normal.
 
Surveyors have begun the process of assessing damage to stormwater and sanitary sewer lines. Repair plans will be developed once the assessment is complete.

Any questions about the mudflow debris removal process may be directed to Public Works Director Kevin McGowan at kmcgowan@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4176. The City will provide advance notification if there are any changes to the work schedule.

Ice House Plaza

All are invited to attend the grand opening of the new Ice House Plaza in downtown Sausalito from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 26. The new plaza fronts Bridgeway on City land adjacent to the Ice House Museum and Visitor Center at the corner of Bay Street and Bridgeway.

The creation of the new plaza was led by the Sausalito Historical Society, with the financial support of individual donors and a wide variety of local organizations and businesses.

The plaza design features wooden benches, concrete seating walls, native plants, a wooden platform for making presentations to local schoolchildren, and a historical timeline inlaid into the pavement along the path of a rail line created with tile from Heath Ceramics. The new plaza also features a bronze statue of cartoonist and longtime Sausalito Historical Society volunteer Phil Frank. Following Phil's death in 2007, Bea Seidler of the Sausalito Foundation took up the cause of building the plaza that Phil had envisioned for the site.

Plans for the Ice House Plaza were approved by the Planning Commission and the Historic Landmarks Board in February 2017. In May 2017, the City Council approved the placement of the statue. Construction at the site began in January 2019.

Park Free in Downtown Lots with a Resident Parking Passcard

Pay stations
Parking lot pay stations in downtown Sausalito
If you are a licensed driver and a Sausalito resident, you are eligible for a Resident Parking Passcard that will give you free parking, with some restrictions, in downtown Sausalito. With a parking passcard, Sausalito residents receive the following benefits:
  • Up to three hours of free parking in public lots before 6:00 p.m.
  • An unlimited amount of free parking in public lots after 6:00 p.m.
A Resident Parking Passcard works like a credit card. Once enrolled, you pay for parking time using your passcard at parking lot pay stations. Purchasing more parking hours than are allotted for free will result in overages that are billable at the posted parking lot rates. For example, if you use your passcard to purchase four hours of parking time at 9:00 a.m. in Parking Lot #1, the fourth hour will be considered an overage and will be billed at $3 per hour.

To apply for a Resident Parking Passcard, follow these steps:
  • Download and complete an application for a Resident Parking Passcard
  • Assemble supporting documentation for your application (proof of residency, copy of driver's license, copy of vehicle registration)
  • Submit the application, along with supporting documentation and a $10 application fee, to the Sausalito Parking Authority by mail or in-person during regular business hours
Any questions about Resident Parking Passcards may be directed to (415) 289-4170 or parking@sausalito.gov. The Sausalito Parking Authority is located at 29 Caledonia Street in the Sausalito Police Station. Regular business hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Please note that Parking Lot #2 will be closed for construction from October 21 to early December 2019.
