Historic Preservation Commission Update

Post Date:05/17/2019 3:00 PM

The role of the Historic Preservation Commission is to identify, preserve, and protect the historical assets of the City of Sausalito and to educate and engage the public on the importance of preservation.

Previous meeting. At its meeting on Thursday, April 25, the Historic Preservation Commission watched a pre-recorded presentation from the California Preservation Foundation regarding "cultural landscapes" and discussed the topic as it relates to Sausalito. A cultural landscape is "a geographic area, including both cultural and natural resources and the wildlife or domestic animals therein, associated with a historic event, activity, or person or exhibiting other cultural or aesthetic values" (National Park Service Preservation Brief 36).
 
Upcoming Meeting. There will be a meeting of the Historic Preservation Commission in the Conference Room of City Hall at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23. The following items are scheduled for consideration:
  • A certificate of appropriateness for a rehabilitation/remodel project at 12-22 Princess Street, a property located in the Downtown Historic District
  • A certificate of appropriateness for a rehabilitation/remodel project at 660 Bridgeway, a property located in the Downtown Historic District
  • Discussion and preparation for stakeholder engagement with the Sausalito General Plan Update process
The staff liaison to the Historic Preservation Commission is Senior Planner Calvin Chan. Any questions about the commission may be directed to cchan@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4129. All meetings are open to the public, with time available for public comment.
