Introduction

The City Council has approved a 6-month pilot program to offer a mobile shower service to Sausalito's homeless and waterfront communities. The approval on November 13, 2018, was by unanimous vote of the Council's five members. In approving the pilot program, the Council directed City staff to do the following:
  • Work with the Downtown Streets Team to enter into an agreement with Marin Mobile Care to develop and operate a 6-month mobile shower pilot program at Marinship Park and the City Hall parking lot
  • Consider appropriate times for the mobile shower service, generally in the morning
  • Consider adding an evening time, if warranted
  • Conduct outreach to neighboring businesses, faith-based organizations, and potential customers to maximize the number of participants, while minimizing any negative impacts to neighbors
  • Return to the City Council in March 2019 with a status report on the program
