Committee Background and Purpose

On May 7, 2013 the Sausalito City Council formed a 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 MSP using studies already completed on behalf of the City and any new studies as recommended by the Marinship Specific Plan 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.

The Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee consists of five members (two former City Councilmembers, two residents and one Planning Commissioner) appointed by the City Council and two City Councilmember liaisons.
