Is Wolfback Ridge Road Publicly Accessible?

Wolfback Ridge Road
Signs at the entrance to Wolfback Ridge Road
On Monday, March 12, 2018, the City of Sausalito began receiving inquiries from Bay Area residents and the local news media as to whether or not Wolfback Ridge Road is a publicly accessible conduit to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The answer is no. Although the road is within Sausalito City limits, it is private and restricted to use by Wolfback Ridge residents and their guests. The inquiries were triggered by an internet post made by an irate hiker who had been told not to park along the road.

The status of Wolfback Ridge Road as private was confirmed by a state court ruling in 1970, Glass v. Gulf Oil. That case contributed to the delay and ultimate demise of the Marincello development, which would have created a community of 30,000 people in the Marin Headlands, in the jurisdiction of Marin County.

In 2015, inaccurate information in a County of Marin mapping database led Sausalito City staff to erroneously refer to Wolfback Ridge Road as public. The misinformation was corrected in the database, and the County Assessor's records were updated to reflect that the road is a private right‐of‐way easement, but not before posts citing the inaccurate information made their way onto the internet.

Since receiving the new inquiries about Wolfback Ridge Road, the City of Sausalito has endeavored to educate the public about the road's private status. However, the City has been made aware that people may gather on Wolfback Ridge Road in protest, based on the inaccurate information from 2015. The Sausalito Police will monitor the area to protect the safety of all involved.

For those seeking access to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area from Sausalito, the National Park Service recommends the Morning Sun Trail adjacent to the Spencer Avenue parking area, or the Rodeo Avenue Trail at the Rodeo Avenue exit from southbound Highway 101.

For more information, please contact Lilly Whalen, City Clerk and Assistant City Manager, at (415) 289-4134 or lwhalen@sausalito.gov.

Dunphy Park Gets Temporary Fence Along Shoreline

Fence in Dunphy Park
A section of the temporary fencing along the Dunphy Park shoreline
The City of Sausalito Parks and Recreation Department has installed temporary wood slat fencing along the shoreline of Dunphy Park to protect visitors from exposed debris.

Before it was acquired by the City in 1970, the area that is now Dunphy Park included a burn dump. People would drop off their garbage to be burned. Any remaining, unburned objects were compacted and put in Richardson Bay as landfill.

The process of transforming the area into a park in the early 1970s included putting a "cap" on the landfill to contain the debris. Over time, the cap along the shoreline has eroded to the point that debris can now be seen along the high tide mark. The debris includes broken glass and sharp pieces of metal.

The temporary fence will serve to keep both small and large hands and feet safely away from the debris, and will hopefully slow the erosion process by eliminating foot traffic over sensitive areas.

The City has been working with the California Conservation Corps and Cal Recycle to secure grant funding for the necessary shoreline repairs. City staff will soon be requesting bids from contractors to do the restoration work, as well as the other renovations planned for Dunphy Park. For more information, please contact Parks and Recreation Director Mike Langford at mlangford@sausalito.gov.

How to Make a Right Turn Across a Bicycle Lane

Right Turns and Bike Lanes
Visual instruction from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition
The City of Sausalito is working with the County of Marin to identify high-risk locations on the roadways of Sausalito, and a study of collision data has revealed that two segments of Bridgeway have some of the highest number of bicycle vs. motor vehicle collision rates per mile in the county. The two segments are Bridgeway between San Carlos Avenue and Napa Street, and Bridgeway between Nevada Street and Gate 5 Road. One of the most common types of accident occurs when a vehicle makes a right turn across the bike lane and either strikes or is struck by a bicycle.

To help reduce the number of these bicycle-vehicle collisions, the City of Sausalito reminds residents that, under the California Vehicle Code, both the approach to and the actual right-turn by a motor vehicle must occur as far to the right as practicable, including instances where that would require crossing into an on-street bicycle lane. 

The right and wrong way to handle a potential conflict is illustrated by the image accompanying this article. While approaching an intersection where the driver plans to turn right, the driver must activate the right-turn signal, confirm that it is safe to do so, and then merge into the bike lane prior to reaching the intersection. Note that the solid white line separating the bike lane from the motor vehicle lane transitions to dashed at the approach to the intersection to encourage such movement. A bicyclist approaching that same intersection will note the movement of a motor vehicle with its right-turn signal flashing and maneuver to the left of the right-turning vehicle to prevent a conflict on the vehicle's right at the turn.

For questions about this and other traffic control issues in Sausalito, please contact Director of Public Works Jonathon Goldman at jgoldman@sausalito.gov or Police Lieutenant Bill Fraass at bfraass@sausalito.gov.

A Visit with Ann Arnott

Ann and Peter Arnott
Peter and Ann Arnott at their home on Cazneau Avenue
Ann Arnott and her husband Peter moved to Sausalito in the early '60s and have lived on Cazneau Avenue for 54 years. Ann and Peter met when they were both working in Tokyo. They have now been married for 56 years.

In 1970, Ann took over the lease of the storefront on Caledonia Street where the restaurant Arawan Thai is today. "The shop was at the corner and was a third of the size of Arawan," she says.

Ann decided to call her new restaurant "Soupçon," and serve lunches of soup, salad, and homemade desserts. The lunch menu had five entrees, and whatever didn't sell was turned into soup for the next day. The restaurant had fourteen seats. Notable customers included Sally Stanford and Herb Caen. 

Ann left the restaurant business in 1974 and started a catering business. She would sew a server dress with matching aprons from scratch to reflect the type of event she was working. 

Ann serves on the Sausalito Marin City Sanitary District Board of Directors and the Sausalito Art Festival Foundation Board of Trustees. "I enjoy working on the Sanitary Board," she says. "We have five people who are civil to each other, do their homework, and don't invoke politics." She has also been active with the Sausalito Woman's Club and the Sausalito Chamber of Commerce.

Reflecting on her years in Sausalito, she says, "There are people in this town who remember Sausalito as it never was, and they really want to keep it that way."

Ann's current project is as "the cookie lady." She makes four kinds of cookies: ginger snap, peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip. Ann maintains a cookie jar at the Bay Model. She also brings cookies to local police officers and firefighters.

This is another installment in a regular series of articles about long-time 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. Links to previous articles from the series may be found on the Age Friendly Sausalito website.

Community Development. To help Sausalito residents age 60 or older make their home a safer place, the City's Community Development Department has teamed up with Age Friendly Sausalito to create the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program. This new program offers reduced-fee or no-cost building permits for home modifications like entry ramps and handrails. Without the grant program, the building permit fee for a new entry ramp could be as high as $350. Younger adults with a disability are also eligible for the program.

A full list of modifications eligible for a reduced-fee or no-cost building permit is available from the Community Development Department counter in City Hall. To participate in the program, a Sausalito homeowner or renter (with landlord approval) fills out an application form that is available online or from the Community Development Department counter. The form requires proof of age or standard proof of disability to determine eligibility. Any questions about the Age Friendly Home Adaptation Grant Program may be directed to Permit Technician McKenna Ramiro at (415) 289-4128.
