General Plan Update Gets Boost from Joint Study Session

Post Date:01/17/2020 4:00 PM

Sausalito's General Plan Update took a big step forward with a joint study session of the City Council and the Planning Commission on January 14 at the IDESST Sausalito Portuguese Cultural Center. At the meeting, the Council, Planning Commission, and members of the public provided feedback on a draft framework of objectives and policies for the six required elements of the general plan and on the possible addition of three optional elements.

A complete video recording of the meeting is available on the City website. City staff and consultants from M-Group are in the process of compiling the direction from the City Council and Planning Commission that was received at the meeting.

The joint study session concludes the "visioning" phase of the General Plan Update but not opportunities for public input. The next steps toward a completed General Plan Update will include public meetings of a new working group, consisting of two councilmembers and two planning commissioners, to draft the Public Review Draft General Plan Update and Draft Environmental Impact Report. At the January 14 meeting, Mayor Susan Cleveland-Knowles appointed herself, Councilmember Joan Cox, Commissioner Janelle Kellman, and Commissioner Kristina Feller to serve on the working group.

The current timetable for the General Plan Update is as follows:
  • January-May 2020: Meetings of the Draft General Plan Update Working Group
  • April 2020: General Plan Advisory Committee meeting on the Public Review Draft General Plan Update
  • May 2020: Community workshop on the Public Review Draft General Plan Update
  • May 2020: City Council and Planning Commission joint study session on the Public Review Draft General Plan Update and Draft Environmental Impact Report
  • June 2020: General Plan Advisory Committee Review Meeting on the Revised Public Review Draft General Plan Update and Draft Environmental Impact Report
  • September 2020: Two Planning Commission adoption hearings on the General Plan Update and Environmental Impact Report
  • October 2020: Two City Council adoption hearings on the General Plan Update and Environmental Impact Report
Any questions or comments about the General Plan Update may be directed to Interim Planning Director Bill Meeker at bmeeker@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4137.
