Princess Street

Sausalito's first rain and wind storm of the season on November 28 and 29 proved to be relatively uneventful. City staff and first responders were prepared for the worst, with up to 1.5 inches of rain and wind gusts approaching 44 mph in the forecast.

The Sausalito Police Department reports the following incidents from the storm:
  • High winds overnight knocked a large limb off of a tree on Marion Avenue and another on Santa Rosa Avenue. Both streets were cleared by crews from Southern Marin Fire and the City's Department of Public Works.
  • A branch broke off a tree on Princess Street on Thursday morning, causing minor damage to a parked car.
  • Three vessels outside of City waters on Richardson Bay broke free due to high winds during the storm. All three vessels were recovered by Parker Diving Service of Sausalito.
  • On Thursday morning, the U.S. Coast Guard responded to a report of two anchored vessels colliding with each other approximately 100 yards from the fuel dock at Clipper Yacht Harbor, in an area outside of City waters.
Any questions about the storm or storm preparedness may be directed to Lieutenant Bill Fraass of the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170 or bfraass@sausalito.gov.

City Council Beefs Up Code Enforcement

City Council
A frame from the video recording of the City Council meeting on November 27
At its meeting on Tuesday, November 27, the City Council unanimously approved a resolution to allocate $137,280 to bolster enforcement of the Sausalito Municipal Code. The City currently employs a code enforcement officer on a contract basis for one day per week. With the additional funds, the schedule of the code enforcement officer will be increased to three days per week.

The increase in code enforcement will be funded by the 2% increase in the hotel tax that was approved by Sausalito voters as Measure L in the 2018 general municipal election. The City anticipates receiving an additional $150,000 during the first six months of calendar year 2019.

Enforcement of the municipal code helps protect the health, safety, and quality of life of residents. The City's code enforcement procedures use a combination of judicial and administrative remedies to gain compliance with local regulations.

The expanded schedule for the code enforcement officer will begin in early December. At the onset, code enforcement will focus on the backlog of code complaints that have been reported to the City.

At the meeting on November 27, the Council also approved $14,549 for a one-year contract with Host Compliance, a company that offers short-term rental monitoring and compliance services. The services provided by Host Compliance will include address identification of short-term rental units, monitoring of compliance with local regulations, rental activity monitoring, and a 24-hour hotline for complaints about short-term rentals.

The City of Sausalito defines a short-term rental as the rental of a dwelling unit, accessory unit, or the room or rooms of a dwelling unit for a period of less than 30 days. Such rentals are currently illegal in Sausalito. The City Council has discussed, but has not yet taken action to implement, a pilot program to allow short-term rentals under limited circumstances. If a pilot program goes forward, the City's code enforcement officer will enforce the new regulations under the pilot program. If a pilot program does not go forward, the code enforcement officer will enforce the existing ban on short-term rentals.

Any questions, comments, or requests to receive email notice of upcoming meetings related to code enforcement or short-term rentals may be directed to Community Development Director Lilly Whalen at lwhalen@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4133.

Status Update on Park Improvement Projects in Sausalito

Southview Park
The plan for the new layout at Southview Park
At the City Council meeting on November 27, Public Works Director and City Engineer Jonathon Goldman presented an update on park improvement projects currently underway in the City of Sausalito. The update covered Dunphy Park, Southview Park, and improvements to the athletic field and tennis and basketball courts at MLK Park.

MLK Park. Improvements currently underway at the athletic field at MLK Park include regrading the field to improve drainage and adding an asphalt path around the perimeter of the field. Improvements to the tennis courts are also planned, but were delayed when the low bid was higher than the engineer's estimate. City staff has revised the bid form to make the base project more affordable and has issued a notice inviting bids with the intent to complete tennis court work in spring 2019. Improvements to the basketball court are also planned, including the addition of pickleball. The basketball/pickleball court project is also expected to be completed in spring 2019.

Dunphy Park. Construction of the Dunphy Park Improvement Project was originally scheduled to begin in September 2018 but was delayed pending various permits and agreements, including a permit from the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC). City staff has been informed that the BCDC permit is imminent. Notice to proceed with construction of the project has been issued, and work will start in early December 2018. It is expected that the bulk of the work at Dunphy Park will be completed by the end of June 2019.

Southview Park. Contractor bids on the Southview Park Improvement Project have been received by the City and are currently being evaluated. If an acceptable low bid is within the engineer's estimate for the project, construction will begin in early 2019.

Be a Good Neighbor: Help Each Other Prepare for a Disaster

Earthquake

Preparing for and responding to a disaster begins with preparing yourself and your family. However, there are limits to what an individual or family can do. When a large disaster strikes and the City of Sausalito's emergency services workers are overwhelmed with calls for service, the first people you will turn to for help will be your neighbors. It is of vital importance that you build good relationships with your neighbors and help each other prepare before a disaster strikes. Here are some tips to help guide you and your neighbors in your preparedness efforts:
  • Introduce yourself and get to know your neighbors individually.
  • Set up a meeting with your neighbors to discuss the importance of working together to prepare for emergencies.
  • Share information with your neighbors, such as earthquake preparedness tips and recommended supply lists.
  • Discuss and develop emergency plans with your neighbors for meeting places, methods of communication, and ways to work together in the event of a disaster.
  • Share resource ideas for food storage, water, first aid kits, and 72-hour portable emergency kits.
  • If your neighbors are willing to share personal information, collect and distribute a list with your names, addresses, phone numbers, and any special needs. If possible, inventory and include on this list the skills and equipment of neighbors that could be useful in an emergency (e.g. those with medical training, those with experience with electrical systems, and those who own chain saws, crowbars, water purifiers etc.).
  • Encourage your neighbors to join you in obtaining emergency training such as CPR, First Aid, or Community Emergency Response Team (CERT). You and your neighbors can receive training from the American Red Cross and the Southern Marin Fire Protection District.
The City of Sausalito and the City's Community Safety/Disaster Preparedness Committee encourage neighbors to work together to prepare for disasters. Sausalito Police officers are available to meet with you and your neighbors to discuss the importance of disaster preparation and give advice during your organizational efforts. For additional disaster preparedness information or to set up a neighborhood meeting, please contact Sergeant Brandon Rodgers at (415) 289-4179 or brodgers@sausalito.gov.

Southern Marin Fire. Firefighters from Southern Marin Fire responded to multiple California wildfires during the 2018 wildfire season. Crews were sent to the Carr Fire in Redding, the Pawnee Fire in Lake County, and the Woolsey Fire in Ventura and Los Angeles counties. The Woolsey Fire started on November 8. By the time it was extinguished, it burned nearly 100,000 acres and destroyed more than 1,000 homes.

This fire season once again reminded us in Southern Marin to always be prepared to evacuate in the event of a fast-moving wildfire.
