About the Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee

On May 7, 2013 the Sausalito City Council formed a Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee. The purpose of the Steering Committee is to work with staff and a consultant to accomplish the following goals: 

  • Evaluate the MSP using studies already completed on behalf of the City and any new studies as recommended by the Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee to determine to what degree that the MSP is adding to the health of the City and to the degree that is necessary to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing. 
  • Identify areas of the Marinship where improvements can be made to the MSP to add to the health of the City and to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing. 
  • Develop a community engagement plan and a property owner outreach program. 
  • Recommend changes to the MSP as required. 

The Committee, with staff and the Consultant, produced a final report which was presented to the City Council in February of 2015. The Council then took action to 1) Receive the report 2) Form a subcommittee composed of one HLB rep, one PC rep, two CC members and City Staff with the following objective: a) Develop a timeline and next steps including a preliminary budget to carry out the steering committee's recommended action; b) provide a presentation to the Council regarding the timeline, next steps and preliminary budget
