Planning Permit Applications/Issuance During Marin County Health Officer Order to Shelter In Place

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and out of concern for the safety of staff as well as the public, as of Monday, March 16, 2020, City Hall is closed to the public and the Community Development Department has shifted to planning and building services to virtual appointments/submittals only. The issuance of planning permits will be on a case-by-case basis depending on the nature of the permit and the ability of staff and the public to process the permit while sheltering in place, pursuant to the April 27, 2020, Revised Order from the Marin County Public Health Officer. All submittals other than the Temporary COVID-19 Activities and Encroachment Agreement will be conducted either via email or through E-TRAKiT. Please contact Administrative Aide Maria Hernandez at mhernandez@sausalito.gov for information on how to submit a planning application electronically.
