The Wolfback Estates Subdivision Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) consists of two volumes: 1. the Draft EIR (Part 1 and Part 2) and 2. the Final EIR attachment which responds to comments and recommendations received during the Draft EIR public review period. A hardcopy is on file at the Community Development Department. The Final EIR was adopted and certified by the City. The project analyzed in the EIR is also subject to a Settlement Agreement. As part of the Settlement Agreement, the 13-lot subdivision was reduced to the present 10-lot subdivision. The property at 44 Wolfback Ridge Road was formerly identified as Lot 12 of the 13-lot subdivision and is presently identified as Lot 10. The Final Map for the Wolfback Estates Subdivision is available for download and view by clicking here. The Final Map is annotated with the approximate former 13-lot subdivision parcel numbering for reference purposes. A simplified graphic representation of the subdivision with annotations is available for download and view by clicking here.

MARINSHIP SPECIFIC PLAN STEERING COMMITTEE. On May 7, 2013 the Sausalito City Council formed the Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee. The purpose of the Steering Committee is to work with staff and a consultant to accomplish the following goals:
• Evaluate the Marinship Specific Plan (MSP) using studies already completed on behalf of the City and any new
  studies as recommended by the Steering Committee to determine to what degree that the MSP is adding to the 
  health of the City and to the degree that is necessary to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing.
• Identify areas of the Marinship where improvements can be made to the MSP to add to the health of the City and
  to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing.
• Develop a community engagement plan and a property owner outreach program.
• Recommend changes to the MSP as required.

BRIDGEWAY APARTMENTS – 1755 BRIDGEWAY. In February 2014, the Community Development Department received applications for a Design Review Permit, Conditional Use Permit and Tentative Subdivision Map to construct 16 residential condominium units on 0.58 acres located on the west side of Bridgeway south of Easterby Street on property zoned Multiple Family (R-3) Residential. The four existing residential structures on the site would be demolished to make way for the project. The 16 units would be located within two buildings with enclosed parking on the ground level. While the site has frontage along Filbert Avenue, vehicle access is only proposed from Bridgeway. One three-bedroom unit and 15 two-bedroom units are proposed, 5 of which are proposed to be ADA accessible via an elevator. The project application is currently incomplete. The project will be subject to environmental review.

ACCESSORY DWELLING UNIT (ADU) REGULATIONS. The City Council has adopted rules regarding ADUs. An ADU, also known as a "mother-in-law" or "granny" unit, is an additional living unit that has separate kitchen, sleeping, and bathroom facilities. An ADU may be attached to or detached from the primary residential unit on a lot. As of January 2013 ADUs are allowed in all residential neighborhoods under certain conditions. In addition, existing ADUs which were installed without permits could apply for and be legalized by the City under a temporary amnesty program between January 2013 and March 2014 . After the amnesty period closed, all unpermitted ADUs which had not been granted amnesty are subject to code enforcement. To view Ordinance No. 1209, which regulates ADUs, please click here.

For information on how to apply for a planning permit for a NEW unit, please download the New ADU Permit Brochure, which explains the permitting process, submittal requirements and standards the ADU must meet. You can find the application form for a New Accessory Dwelling Unit Permit and the fee schedule here.

Calls/emails/inquires about the ADU process, will be confidential and anonymous. Contact Lilly Schinsing, Administrative Analyst, at (415) 289-4134 or with any questions.


UPDATED STANDARDS FOR MULTI-FAMILY ZONED PROPERTIES. Effective April 18, 2014, there are new regulations for residential units in two and multi-family Zoning Districts (the R-2, R-2-2.5 and R-3 Zoning Districts). For full code amendments see Ordinance No. 1217 adopted by the Sausalito City Council on March 18, 2014. For a summary of how these new regulations affect projects in the R-2, R-2-2.5 and R-3 Zoning Districts click here.


MUNICIPAL CODE AMENDMENTS. Since the adoption of the Zoning Ordinance in 2003, staff has compiled a list of issues that would benefit from clarification. The list includes issues raised by residents, architects and other interested community members. Staff brought the list of issues to the City Council on July 12, 2011 and recommended they be split into two categories: (1) those issues that are ready for immediate review ("Minor Amendments") and (2) those issues that require additional staff work and review by the Legislative Committee ("Policy Amendments"). The Minor Amendments were approved by the City Council on February 28, 2012 and became effective on March 29, 2012.
