On January 25, 2018 the San Francisco Planning Commission continued their consideration of Sausalito's appeal of the project to their meeting of February 22, 2018. View the agenda for the January 25 meeting here.

Background

On December 6, 2017 the San Francisco Planning Agency issued a Preliminary Mitigated Negative Declaration (PMND) for the Alcatraz Ferry Embarkation Project.  In addition to improvement to Piers 31 and 33 in San Francisco to provide ferry service to Alcatraz Island, the project also includes ferry service between Pier 31 1/2 and the existing Fort Baker pier as well as interpretive cruises around the bay.   The PMND failed to adequately analyze and mitigate impacts of the ferry service to Fort Baker in Sausalito.  The PMND includes flawed assumptions and lacks any analysis of the project's potential to substantially increase pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular traffic along Alexander Avenue and exacerbate the already severely, over-crowded conditions in Sausalito's historic downtown and waterfront.  Therefore, on December 27, 2017 the City of Sausalito submitted an appeal of the San Francisco Planning Department's proposed Preliminary Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Alcatraz Ferry Embarkation Project.
