Effort Continues to Identify New Housing Sites in Sausalito

Housing Element Advisory Committee
A scene from the Housing Element Advisory Committee meeting on March 28
Interest in the City of Sausalito's Housing Element Update process has increased as City staff and a City Council-appointed advisory committee work to identify sites that could be rezoned for new housing. The City is under a state mandate to accommodate 724 new housing units within city limits by 2031.

Two meetings are scheduled in the coming weeks that will provide community members with a status update on the site identification process and an opportunity to provide feedback on the sites that are under evaluation.

The next monthly meeting of the Housing Element Advisory Committee will be held via Zoom at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, April 25. At the meeting, the committee will continue the process of identifying housing sites that began at its March 28 meeting. A video recording of the March meeting is available on the City website, along with a link to a meeting agenda with supporting documents.

At the April 25 meeting, the committee will also receive a report on two community surveys that have been extended through April 17. One of the surveys asks property owners to inform the City of any potential plans for new housing units, including accessory dwelling units and lot splits.

The Housing Element Virtual Town Hall that was originally scheduled for April 27 has been rescheduled to Monday, May 9 at 6:00 p.m. At the meeting, City staff and the City's consulting team will seek community feedback on the draft housing opportunity sites selected by the Housing Element Advisory Committee. Please RSVP to receive details on attending the town hall meeting via Zoom.

The town hall on May 9 is the second of four planned town hall meetings. A video recording of the February 10 town hall, which provided an overview of the Housing Element Update process, is available on the City's YouTube channel.

Sites selected for rezoning will be included in a Draft Housing Element that is expected to be available for public review in July 2022. Sausalito's 2023-2031 Housing Element must be adopted by the City Council and submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development no later than January 31, 2023.

Any questions about the Housing Element Update may be directed to Heidi Scoble at hscoble@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4134.

City Council Receives Budget Report, Overview of City Finances

City Finances
A screenshot from City Manager Chris Zapata's presentation to the City Council
City Manager Chris Zapata provided an overview of the past, present, and future of the City's financial condition in a 35-minute Zoom presentation to the City Council on April 12.

Mayor Janelle Kellman called the presentation, "as thorough an articulation in layman's terms of the course and direction [of City finances]" that she has seen in her 20 years as a Sausalito resident.

Listed below are some of the key points made by City Manager Zapata in his presentation.
  • Cuts and the use of surplus reserves will likely be necessary to balance the budget for the remainder of fiscal year 2021-22 and when preparing the fiscal year 2022-23 budget.
  • Pension obligations and debt service for measures F and S will continue to stress the City budget in the coming years.
    • Measure F (park improvements) will be paid off in 2030.
    • Measure S (public safety buildings) will be paid off in 2041.
    • Pension costs will remain at a high plateau through 2036, then will decline significantly due to past actions taken by the City Council and the State of California.
  • Measure O expires in 2024. The local 0.5¢ sales tax generates approximately $1.2 million per year for the City's General Fund. The City currently receives 1.5¢ of the 8.5¢ sales tax collected in Sausalito and 11.5% of the property tax.
  • Topics for future consideration by the Council include refinancing pension debt, renewing Measure O and possibly increasing the amount it generates, budget cuts, and the use of reserve funds.
A complete video recording of the presentation and a copy of the slide deck are available on the City website. Any questions or comments about City finances may be directed to City Manager Chris Zapata at (415) 289-4166 or czapata@sausalito.gov.

Flooding Forces Partial Closure of Library Through April 18

Books
Books set out to dry inside the library on the night of April 14
A blocked drain on the roof of City Hall caused water to cascade into the Sausalito Library via heating vents in the ceiling on Thursday, April 14.

Approximately 300 books were irremediably damaged. Fans and dehumidifiers have been set up to dry sodden carpet on the main and mezzanine levels of the library.

Because of the damage, the library will be operating with limited services through Monday, April 18. Open hours will not be affected.

The following collections and services will be available:
  • Holds pickup
  • Children's Room
  • New books and bestsellers
  • DVDs
  • Young adult fiction
  • Information Desk
  • Public computers
The following services will not be available:
  • Seating areas
  • Browsing of all other collections
The Sausalito Library would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to the attendees of a library-sponsored Thursday night lecture. The library was closed when the leak was discovered at 8:00 p.m. by City Librarian Abbot Chambers. Speaker Wilford Welch and nearly everyone in the audience of 25, including Mayor Janelle Kellman, responded to the call and helped save books that would otherwise have been ruined.

License Plate Cameras Strike Again. At 12:06 p.m. on Wednesday, April 13, the Sausalito Police Department received an alert from its license plate recognition cameras of a stolen vehicle entering Sausalito from the 4000 block of Bridgeway. The vehicle, a 1999 Honda CRV, had been stolen out of Novato on April 1.

Officer Bryce Mitchell located the Honda and effected a traffic stop in the 1900 block of Bridgeway. Officers removed and detained the driver and sole occupant, Jennifer Shull, a 47-year-old resident of Petaluma.

Further investigation revealed that Shull had a $7,500 outstanding warrant out of Marin County for narcotics offenses. Shull was arrested for the warrant and possession of a stolen vehicle and subsequently booked into the Marin County Jail.

Sixty-five stolen vehicles have been recovered since the City of Sausalito's license plate recognition camera system became operational in 2017, leading to the arrest of 71 individuals for various crimes.
