Take a Survey on Southview Park Renovations

The conceptual drawing for Southview Park renovations (full-size version)
The Parks and Recreation Department seeks your feedback on a planned renovation of Sausalito's Southview Park. An online survey on a new conceptual plan for park renovation is currently underway on the City website. A community meeting to gather additional input on the renovation will be held at Southview Park on Saturday, March 18 at 11:00 a.m.

Southview Park is located on North Street between 3rd and 4th streets in Old Town. The property originally served as the site of a school, but in 1961 was turned into a City of Sausalito park. In 1998, the park was renovated by volunteers and a new play structure was installed. Today, among other signs of deterioration, retaining walls are giving way and the tennis court is warped, cracked, and no longer playable. The play structure no longer meets safety and accessibility requirements.

On October 1, 2016, Parks and Recreation staff held a community meeting at Southview Park to gather renovation ideas from Sausalito residents. Forty people attended the meeting. The overwhelming response from attendees was to keep Southview Park the same, but to repair or upgrade the existing facilities.

In February 2017, the landscape architecture firm SWA Group crafted a conceptual drawing for Southview Park renovations based on the "keep it the same" feedback from residents. The drawing was presented by Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at the City Council meeting on February 14, 2017.

The first public meeting to discuss the conceptual drawing was held on February 21. The general sentiment from that meeting and from feedback to date via email is that the drawing effectively captures the wants of the community. One planned improvement based on community feedback is to reduce the size of the proposed concrete area, so as to maintain the size of the existing lawn.

Tracy Way Becomes Bike Parking Area for Tourist Season

Tracy Way
Tracy Way during the 2016 tourist bicycle season
Spring is on the way, which means that Sausalito can expect another seasonal influx of tourists on bicycles. The return of large numbers of tourist bicycles also means the return of the City of Sausalito's Downtown Bike Parking and Congestion Management Program.

As with past years, the most visible sign of the Bike Parking and Congestion Management Program will be the closure of Tracy Way to motor vehicle traffic. Beginning on Friday, March 10, and continuing through the bicycle season, Tracy Way will become a valet parking area for bikes. The Tracy Way parking area helps keep bicycles off of Sausalito's crowded sidewalks. It also makes it simpler for tourists to patronize Sausalito's downtown merchants while they wait for the ferry.

Bicycle parking in the Tracy Way lot is free to Sausalito and Marin County residents. In addition, free bicycle parking is available in unattended parking areas adjacent to downtown, such as the bike parking area at the north end of Municipal Parking Lot 3.

The Sausalito Police Department encourages residents and visitors to refrain from parking bicycles anywhere downtown other than designated bike parking areas or fixed bicycle racks. Sausalito City Ordinance No. 1222, authorizes the City to impound improperly parked bicycles and to charge a $25 release fee. Downtown parking enforcement hours are from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Questions about Sausalito's Bike Parking and Congestion Management Program may be directed to Lieutenant Stacie Gregory, (415) 289-4170 or sgregory@ci.sausalito.ca.us.

Citizen's Police Academy
A scene from the 2016 Citizen's Police Academy
The Sausalito Police Department is currently accepting applications for the 2017 Citizen's Police Academy. The academy is designed to provide an inside look at how our police department operates. Classes will focus on a variety of topics, including police ethics, use of force, drug recognition, emergency preparedness, and DUI investigations.

All class participants will be given the opportunity to go on two ride-alongs with a Sausalito police officer, one with the night shift and one with the day shift. The ride-alongs are a great way to get to know police officers on a personal level.

The 2017 Citizen's Police Academy will run for ten consecutive Wednesday evenings from 7:00 until 9:30 p.m. The academy is open to adults who live or work in Sausalito. The tentative start date is April 12.

Anyone who is interested in participating in what will be class number twenty of the Citizen's Police Academy should contact Sergeant Jason McConnehey at (415) 289-4181 or jmcconnehey@ci.sausalito.ca.us. Applications are also available in the front lobby of the police station at 29 Caledonia Street.

A Visit with Bill Broder

Bill Broder
Bill Broder at his home on Central Avenue
Many of you may know longtime Sausalito resident Bill Broder as a writer of both fiction and memoir. When writing, Bill likes to inhabit the souls in his stories and bring them into his writing space.

Bill's characters come alive in his work, presenting highly charged opposing forces, where foes can become allies and allies turn into foes.

Those same forces can be found in politics at a local level. Bill calls Sausalito a "small western town which has the same issues as other communities, including sewers, traffic, buildings, visitors and road repairs." When opposing forces converge on these issues, they can be very contentious. Bill says, "This town is much more than an art colony."

Bill and his late wife, Gloria, came to Sausalito in the late fifties from Detroit, via the Russian Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Gloria had graduated from the University of Michigan, and Bill had completed his undergraduate degree at Columbia. As a newly married couple, they both attended the early Wallace Stegner writing workshops at Stanford and went on to become good friends with Wally and his wife Mary.

"We bought our house on Central Avenue in 1962. We did lots of writing with two small kids." When asked about his favorite places in Sausalito, Bill says, "It would have been fun to hang out with Evan Connell at The No Name Bar, but we never enough time for that."

Central Avenue, though its name suggests a major artery running through Sausalito, is only a single-block, one-way street. But the people who have come to live on Central over the years created their own intimate enclave of long-term friendships. When a new neighbor moved in, Bill and Gloria would stop by with a housewarming gift and a helping hand.

"Gloria loved our house, the water views and the green belt. She was a great and beautiful woman. She would often meditate in our living room that overlooks the water."

Bill remembers when their kids attended the Cooperative Nursery School in the late 60's and they met many freethinking teachers and parents. He says it was a period of "amazing innovation and creativity."

He loves Sausalito Village, especially because it's run entirely by volunteers, which is unique among other village programs.

Bill appreciates that Sausalito is a town where you can get anywhere within just a few minutes. Bill likes to hike in the Marin Headlands, and it's easy for him to take a break from writing and head out on the local trails.

At 85, Bill Broder continues to write every day. His most recently completed work is What Do We Do with Our Dead? A Meditation, in which he accompanies his wife on her journey through the "dark corridors of American medical bureaucracy." In the end, Bill finds love renewed as he details their happy life together. His love of life is imbued in his writing, and his stories are told with a heart of gold.


This is the third installment of a series of articles about long-time Sausalito residents who have made an impact on our City. The articles are written by John Oppenheimer in collaboration with Age Friendly Sausalito, a task force of the Sausalito City Council. Age Friendly Sausalito is dedicated to advancing Sausalito as an age-friendly city so that its residents can actively age in place.

Window Art by Julie Myers Now on Display in the Library

Window Art
Samples of the window art by "craftist" Julie Myers
Nine pieces of window art by Julie Myers will be on display in the Sausalito Library through April 9, 2017. Julie's day job is as Recreation Supervisor for the City of Sausalito's Parks and Recreation Department. The exhibit may be viewed during open hours at the Library.

Julie has been working with mixed media on windows since 2008. She likes to think of herself as a "craftist" rather than an artist. Painting or gluing stuff on windows is her way to relax; it keeps her hands busy so her mind can work on other things. The windows in the exhibit all came from salvage yards. Sometimes Julie leaves the original paint on them, sometimes she sands it off. Yarn and beads are affixed with good old Elmer's Glue.

Updates from Boards and Commissions

Each week, on a rotating schedule, this section will provide highlights of the recent activities of two of the boards and commissions representing the City of Sausalito. Follow this link for more information on all of our boards and commissions.
Historic Landmarks Board. On February 22, the Historic Landmarks Board (HLB) and the Planning Commission conducted a joint public hearing for the Ice House Plaza local enhancement project and 676-686 Bridgeway. The public hearing for the Ice House Plaza focused on the incorporation of interpretive elements to the plaza surrounding the Ice House building, located at the corner of Bridgeway and Bay Street (780 Bridgeway). The majority of the project was approved; City staff is working with the applicant to review the incorporation of a statue art piece to the public plaza.

The HLB and the Planning Commission also approved the remodel of 676-686 Bridgeway, the former site of the Fine Art Etc. gallery and the Seven Seas Restaurant. The remodel will include a comprehensive façade update and convert the three existing first-level storefronts into two storefronts.

Are you interested in becoming involved with the Historic Landmarks Board? The City of Sausalito is seeking an additional member for this five-person board responsible for reviewing applications for exterior renovation of historic or noteworthy structures, historic sites, and landmarks located throughout Sausalito.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee. The City of Sausalito's Pedestrian and Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) met on Tuesday, February 21, in the Council Chambers. At the meeting, the PBAC heard updates on the number of bicyclists reported by the Golden Gate Ferry as being carried on its outbound service to San Francisco.

The PBAC also reviewed the Strava members' annual report for 2016. Committee Member David Suto reported that 18,903 Strava members who were using the app at the time rode northbound on Bridgeway to Princess in 2016, with a total of 417,481 trips. Suto also reported that 32% of Strava trips northbound across the Golden Gate Bridge do not ride into Sausalito, but likely ride into the Marin Headlands and return to San Francisco.

The PBAC subcommittee's work with Alta Planning will continue to further refine the City's draft Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan Update (funded by the Transportation Authority of Marin) for City Council consideration later this spring.

The City's Bicycle Plan for 2017 was also discussed, as was the status of the South Gateway and Dunphy Park Rehabilitation Projects. New stop signs near US 101 on the Sausalito Lateral (Alexander Avenue) were discussed, as were the legal requirements for lights and reflectors on bicycles using the public right-of-way, potential plans for ferry embarkation at Fort Baker, and the prospect of a rectangular rapid-flash beacon system at the intersection of Second and Main Streets in Hurricane Gulch.

The PBAC's next meeting is scheduled for Monday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the Council Chambers. The staff liaisons to the PBAC are John Rohrbacher, Chief of Police, and Jonathon Goldman, Director of Public Works, City Engineer and ADA Coordinator.
