Have Coffee with a Cop on Wednesday, March 11

Coffee with a Cop
Coffee with a Cop
Coffee with a Cop provides a great opportunity for members of the community and officers from the Sausalito Police Department to get together on an informal basis to discuss local issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. The next Coffee with a Cop event will take place from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 11 at Sausalito Equator, 1201 Bridgeway. Everyone is welcome.

The majority of contacts between law enforcement and the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship-building, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Any questions about Coffee with a Cop may be directed to the Sausalito Police Department at (415) 289-4170.

Objective Design and Development Standards for Multi-Family Housing Projects

Sausalito Vista
The City of Sausalito is partnering with the County of Marin and nine other cities in Marin to create Objective Design and Development Standards (ODDS) that can be used for the review and development of new multi-family housing projects. Berkeley-based Opticos Design, Inc. is leading this planning effort, in coordination with the county and cities.

The countywide ODDS initiative is being funded by state planning grants to help cities streamline the approval of new housing units. The use of such standards is becoming increasingly important due to new state housing laws that limit local control and discretion over housing projects.

The effort will result in a toolkit of standards that, if adopted, will provide a clear review and approval process. When the toolkit is completed in fall 2020, communities like Sausalito will have the option to apply the toolkit to local zoning ordinances and further tailor the toolkit, if so desired. 

Community meetings are being held in March 2020 to provide information about ODDS, discuss the development process and timeline, solicit input, and answer questions. Meetings are scheduled for the following dates:

March 11
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Alexander Hall
40 Kensington Court, San Anselmo

March 17
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Novato Town Hall
901 Sherman Avenue, Novato

March 18
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
San Rafael Community Center
618 B Street, San Rafael

March 19
7:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Corte Madera Community Center
498 Tamalpais Avenue, Corte Madera

Any questions about Objective Design and Development Standards may be directed to Community Development Director Lilly Whalen at (415) 289-4133 or lwhalen@sausalito.gov.
