The Sausalito Ferry Landing
The construction of a new Sausalito ferry landing is now expected to begin at the end of 2019, according to a revised schedule provided to the City by the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District.

The bridge district's revised schedule is as follows:
  • End of 2018: Complete project designs
  • Spring 2019: Prepare bid package and secure all permits
  • Spring 2019: Advertise bid package for construction
  • Summer 2019: Award construction contract
  • End of 2019: Begin construction
  • End of 2021: Construction complete
The new schedule is subject to change and may be affected by permitting and bid results, among other factors. Any questions about the ferry landing project may be directed to Interim Community Development Director Lilly Whalen at lwhalen@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4133.

The 2018 Summer Bocce League season ended with an exciting "Super Roll" championship match between Gumballs and Bocce Me Mucho. The final score was Gumballs 21 – Bocce Me Mucho 10, putting the league trophy in the hands of first-time champions Gumballs. The event was followed by an end-of-season barbecue hosted by Sausalito Parks and Recreation.

Beginning with the fall season, the Sausalito Bocce League will go on hiatus for the Dunphy Park Improvement Project, which includes the construction of three new bocce courts. The park closure begins on September 5, 2018. Although a variety of factors are likely to affect the overall project schedule, the base scope of work is expected to be completed by summer 2019.

Any questions about the Sausalito Bocce League may be directed to Recreation Supervisor Linda Finch at lfinch@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4140.

News from City Departments

Administration. Offshore winds with periods of north and northeasterly flow are expected to cause smoke from regional wildfires to move into the Bay Area on Friday, August 31. These complex weather conditions may cause smoke to impact ground-level air quality. For this reason, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has issued an air quality advisory for smoke through Monday, September 3. The advisory is in effect for the entire region.

If the smell of smoke is present, it is important that Bay Area residents protect their health by avoiding exposure. If possible, stay inside with windows and doors closed until smoke levels subside. Set air conditioning units and car vent systems to recirculate to prevent outside air from moving inside.

Smoke can irritate the eyes and airways, causing coughing, a dry scratchy throat, and irritated sinuses. Elevated particulate matter in the air can trigger wheezing in those who suffer from asthma, emphysema, or COPD. Elderly persons, children and individuals with respiratory illnesses are particularly susceptible to elevated air pollution levels and should take extra precautions to avoid exposure.

Library and Administration. The Sausalito Public Library and Sausalito City Hall will be closed on Monday, September 3 for Labor Day. To return books and other materials on September 3, please use the drop boxes located in the City Hall parking lot and at the building's Litho Street entrance.

Public Works. Sausalito City Hall was briefly evacuated on Tuesday, August 28 and Thursday, August 30 due to gas leaks.

City staff and Southern Marin Fire responded quickly to the leaks. The public's cooperation in evacuating City Hall and avoiding the area during both incidents is greatly appreciated. There were no injuries related to either incident.

Police. Hourly parking rates in downtown Sausalito will increase on September 1, 2018, as a result of a resolution passed by the City Council at its meeting on July 31, 2018.

The changes will be in effect every year between April 1 and September 30. During the summer season, hourly parking rates will increase by $1 at each lot, with a corresponding increase in the daily maximum.

Free parking in downtown lots in all seasons will continue to be available to Sausalito residents with a Resident Parking Passcard.
