On February 10, the City of Sausalito declared a state of emergency due to a growing crisis with unsheltered members of our community. The declaration was prompted by a fire and explosion on the evening of February 9 at the tent encampment at the Marinship Park tennis courts.

"This state of emergency is a clear signal to county leaders that our small town needs extra resources, including money and manpower, to deal with this crisis," Sausalito Mayor Janelle Kellman said. "Since the onset of the encampment, Sausalito has been working closely with Marin County officials, and we have repeatedly requested additional support from the county to help find permanent housing for unsheltered residents."

"While we appreciate the recent allocation of funds, it is not sufficient for the unique dynamic of our encampment, and we are asking for further help and support," Mayor Kellman said. "This is costing an overwhelming amount of taxpayer dollars, and private landowners have incurred significant losses. We are committed to working collaboratively with the county to reach a long-term solution."

The county is the primary recipient of state and federal housing funds.

The emergency declaration, called a "proclamation of a local emergency," was signed by City Manager Chris Zapata, who is also Sausalito's Director of Emergency Services. The City Council is expected to formally ratify the proclamation at its regular meeting on February 15.

Encampment resident Debra Ellen Hazelwood was arrested in connection with the fire and explosion. The 61-year-old Hazelwood admitted to using a cigarette lighter to set fire to two tents, one of which contained a propane canister. There were no injuries as a result of the blaze. Additional details can be found in a press release from the Sausalito Police Department.

On February 10, the City of Sausalito successfully completed the relocation of its designated camping area for unhoused individuals to the Marinship Park tennis courts, as authorized by U.S. District Court Judge Edward Chen.

The encampment's former location on the grassy area of Marinship Park is now closed and cleared of abandoned items. 

Encampment residents began moving to City-installed tent platforms on the tennis courts on January 24. Tents have also been provided by the City. No residents remained at the encampment's former location at the time of its closure on February 10.

Approximately 30 individuals currently inhabit the new camping area on the tennis courts. Two encampment residents are being providing with temporary shelter and storage space by the City until additional platforms can be constructed and installed.

Ongoing management of the encampment will be performed by Urban Alchemy, a non-profit organization under contract with the City.

As articulated in a policy statement released last week, "The City of Sausalito is committed to treating all individuals experiencing homelessness with compassion and dignity. As such, Sausalito is dedicated to acting expeditiously and cooperatively to eliminate the need for the Marinship Park tent encampment by continuing, and expanding, partnerships and collaborations focused on identifying and/or creating a range of housing opportunities for persons who have no alternative for sleeping indoors."

100 Attend Housing Element Town Hall

Virtual Town Hall
A scene from the virtual town hall on February 10
A February 10 virtual town hall on the City of Sausalito's task of updating its Housing Element for the years 2023 to 2031 was attended by more than 100 people, most of whom identified themselves as Sausalito residents.

The two-hour town hall began with a Housing Element 101 presentation and an overview of the State of California's requirement that Sausalito identify sites and policies that can generate 724 new housing units by 2031.

Interspersed with slide presentations were opportunities for participation from town hall attendees, including question and answer periods, a live chat window, and surveys that generated real-time bar graphs and word clouds. Attendees were challenged to begin thinking about where new housing could and should go in Sausalito, what types of housing should be built, and for what populations (e.g., seniors, teachers, City employees, the homeless).

A complete video recording of the event can be found on the City's YouTube channel. A slide deck from the presentations is also available.

Sausalito's 2023-2031 Housing Element update is due to the California Department of Housing and Community Development by January 31, 2023. A public review draft is expected to be available by July 2022.

Additional opportunities for public participation will include two community surveys and three more town hall forums. Keep an eye on future editions of Currents and the City's Housing Element Update website for details. Members of the public are also encouraged to attend meetings of the Housing Element Advisory Committee.

Mask Requirements to Ease on Wednesday, February 16

Masks
In alignment with the State of California, the Bay Area counties of Marin, Alameda, Contra Costa, Monterey, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Cruz, Solano, and Sonoma will lift universal mask requirements for most indoor public settings beginning Wednesday, February 16.

Unvaccinated individuals over age 2 will continue to be required to wear masks in all indoor public settings. Businesses, venue operators, and hosts may determine their own paths forward to protect staff and patrons and may choose to require all patrons to wear masks.

Indoor masking will still be required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, in the following settings:
  • Public transportation
  • Hospitals and clinics
  • Correctional facilities
  • Homeless shelters
  • Long-term care facilities
  • K-12 schools
  • Childcare facilities
Bay Area health officers, in alignment with the California Department of Public Health, continue to strongly recommend masks be used as an effective tool to prevent the spread of the virus, especially when case rates are high. Continuing to mask (N95 or double-layer cloth are best) in indoor public settings, especially crowded or poorly ventilated spaces, remains the safest choice for individuals and protects those who are medically vulnerable.
