Update on Short-Term Rental Enforcement

Sausalito hillside
The City of Sausalito continues to monitor and enforce the ban on short-term rentals in residential areas. A short-term rental is defined as the rental of a dwelling unit, accessory unit, or room or rooms of a dwelling unit for a period of less than 30 days.

In January 2019, the City contracted for the services of Host Compliance, a privately held company based in San Francisco, to support the City's enforcement efforts. Host Compliance monitors more than 50 hosting websites, including Airbnb, VRBO, and HomeAway, to discover short-term rentals. To date, Host Compliance has investigated 116 suspected short-term rentals in Sausalito.

When short-term rental activity is determined, Home Compliance identifies the physical address of the property and the address of the property owner. As outlined below, the property owner then receives an initial contact from the City, followed by further engagement if the owner continues to operate the short-term rental.
  • Courtesy Notice. Properties newly identified as operating a short-term rental receive a courtesy notice advising the owner of the City's regulations regarding short-term rentals and directing them to comply within ten days. Properties that previously received a courtesy notice but are still not in compliance are sent a second courtesy notice advising immediate compliance.
  • Compliance Order. Properties that continue to operate a short-term rental after receiving a second courtesy notice receive a compliance order directing immediate compliance and advising that fines will be issued if there is no immediate action.
  • Citation. Properties that have received a compliance order and continue to operate as short-term rentals receive a citation in the amount of $1,000 for the first offense, $2,000 for the second offense, and $5,000 for the third and subsequent offenses, per the Sausalito Municipal Code. Fines are cumulative and citations may be issued each day the violation exists.
City staff has observed a steady decline in advertised rentals since the Council took action regarding short-term rental enforcement in January 2019. Host Compliance recently reported 26 advertised short-term rentals in Sausalito, half of which have been identified by address. This trend may indicate that property owners are either removing their listings or moving their short-term rentals to long-term rentals of 30 days or more.

As the enforcement effort continues, City staff expects that the compliance rate will remain steady, with the goal of further reducing that number over the course of 2020. A summary report will be provided to the City Council in spring 2020.

Host Compliance provides a mechanism for people to report suspected illegal short-term rental activity. Reports can be made by calling the Host Compliance hotline at (415) 942-8181 or by filling out an online form. Reports may also be made directly to the City of Sausalito by printing, signing, and submitting a Code Complaint Form.

Any questions about short-term rentals in Sausalito may be directed to Acting Community Development Director Steve Flint at (415) 289-4133 or sflint@sausalito.gov.

Major Upgrade to Video of City Meetings

Video Console
The new video production console in the Council Chambers
The City's Information Technology staff and a crew from the Community Media Center of Marin were kept busy over the last few weeks of 2019 installing new video cameras and production equipment in the City Hall Council Chambers. 

With the new system, live broadcasts and archived recordings of City meetings will feature high-definition video, improved audio, and better production values. The upgrades are apparent by comparing the recordings of the November 6 and January 22 meetings of the Planning Commission.

The new equipment was paid for with public-access channel funds administered by the Community Media Center of Marin. 

The first City Council meeting to use the upgraded system will be held at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 28. Meetings of the City Council are also broadcast live on television via Comcast Cable Channel 27 or AT&T Channel 99.

Wildfire Fuel Reduction Scheduled for City Streets

Wolfback Ridge Road
Wolfback Ridge Road
In 2019, the Southern Marin Fire Protection District began a new project to remove overgrown vegetation from Sausalito streets. The road clearance project is part of a larger Vegetation Management Program launched by the fire district with funds from Measure U, a $200 parcel tax approved by voters in November 2018 to improve local emergency services.

Removing excess vegetation improves access for emergency vehicles and reduces the amount of fuel available to a wildfire.

Road clearance is being scheduled within fire district boundaries with priority given to areas of greatest need. The next group of Sausalito streets to be targeted is listed below, with work scheduled to begin on or around Monday, February 10.
  • Spencer Avenue
  • Spencer Court
  • Sunshine Avenue
  • Sweet Briar Lane
  • Third Street
  • Valley Street
  • West Street
  • Wolfback Ridge Road
  • Wolfback Terrace
  • Cloudview Trail
  • Rosebowl Drive
  • Canto Gal
Under the road clearance program, landscapers and tree workers employed by the fire district will be performing the following tasks:
  • Removing flammable and encroaching vegetation from roadsides and sidewalks
  • Pruning trees to maintain emergency vehicle access
  • Evaluating street parking spots to determine if they leave enough space for emergency vehicles
  • Clearing vegetation around fire hydrants
  • Marking dead or dying trees with a red dot for future removal
Streets will remain open while work is underway, but traffic may be reduced to one lane in work areas.

Any questions about road clearance in Sausalito may be directed to Vegetation Management Specialist Jesse Figoni at jfigoni@smfd.org or (415) 730-9048. Jesse can also help groups of neighbors arrange for a visit from a district wood chipper.

A Visit with Jacques Ullman

Jacques Ullman
Jacques Ullman at his home on Litho Street
Jacques and Muriel Ullman's home is bright and airy, with a beautiful watercolor collection of Muriel's paintings. A vast atrium skylight greets you when you walk in the door.

Jacques was an architect living on Nob Hill in San Francisco in the late 1960s. He worked on BART and other corporate projects.

He decided to make the move to Sausalito when a couple of run-down houses on Litho Street became available. Ferry service between Sausalito and San Francisco had just been renewed.

Jacques was born in France, and his family moved to New York City when he was five. Later his family moved to Portola Valley, and his parents often came over to Sausalito to see their good friend, Jean Varda.

The Litho house was both a place to live and work. At the front of the property was a carriage house which Jacques rented out to provide additional income to his home-based architecture business.

Jacques met Muriel through a high school friend, and she came out to California to be with him in 1971. They were married in 1976 and have a daughter named Claire.

Jacques has been involved with Dunphy Park for many years. As one of the founders of Friends of Dunphy Park, he helped make it possible for the City to acquire land to the south of the park that would otherwise have been developed as office buildings and a marina.

Jacques and his friend Paul Leffingwell, a landscape architect, volunteered their time to help develop a master plan for an improved and expanded Dunphy Park that includes the new land acquired by the City. The Dunphy Park Schematic Master Plan prepared by Friends of Dunphy Park serves as the basis for the improvement project now underway.

These days Jacques and Muriel spend their time working in the garden, maintaining their house, taking walks, preparing wonderful meals, visiting with friends, going to the library, painting, and going to museums. They look forward to including the new Dunphy Park in their walks through town. 

This is another installment in a regular series of articles about longtime 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.

Struggling to revive a fading way of life, fishermen and entrepreneurs are creating new models for how to support sustainably produced seafood.
