Historic Preservation Commission Update

Post Date:07/19/2019 2:30 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 meetings. At its special meeting on Thursday, June 20, the Historic Preservation Commission continued discussion of initiatives related to the General Plan Update, such as the Sausalito historic context statement, a citywide survey of historical resources, and potential designations for eligible landmarks and districts. The commission also discussed historic preservation incentives such as the Mills Act and federal rehabilitation tax credits. 

At the GPAC meeting on Tuesday, July 9, Historic Preservation Commission Chair David Neuman presented information relevant to the General Plan Update, including the recent update of the City's historic preservation regulations and the formation of the Historic Preservation Commission (formerly the Historic Landmarks Board). He also presented recommendations for developing surveys, guidelines, and preservation incentives for areas of interest to the commission, such as the Downtown Historic District, the Ark Overlay District, Marinship, and the Civic Center.

Upcoming Meeting. The July 25 regular meeting of the Historic Preservation Commission has been canceled due to a lack of business items. The next regular meeting is scheduled for September 26.

The staff liaison to the Historic Preservation Commission is Contract Senior Planner Matthew Weintraub. Any questions about the commission may be directed to mweintraub@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4108. All meetings are open to the public, with time available for public comment.
