2. Repetitive Loss Area Analysis

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to adopt a resolution authorizing the adoption of Repetitive Loss Area Analysis (RLAA) Plan, prepared as part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Community Rating System Program. Inclusion in the program will provide future flood insurance premium rate discounts to property owners living in unincorporated Marin who have flood insurance. The County must prepare a RLAA plan to evaluate and identify where there have been repetitive flood insurance loss claims.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution and the RLAA Plan.

3. Safe Disposal of Unwanted Medications

Preview

The Board will conduct public hearing for an ordinance adding Chapter 7.90 to the Marin County Code (Safe Drug Disposal) requiring any producer of prescription and over-the-counter drugs offered for sale in Marin County to participate in an approved drug stewardship program for collection and disposal of home-generated medications. Meds often are not completely consumed after they are purchased, and most households have leftover, unwanted or unused drugs. Up to 33 percent of meds go unused annually in the United States, presenting a threat to human and environmental health. The proposed ordinance would increase collection sites to at least 25 throughout Marin.

Review

The Board conducted the public hearing and approved the ordinance.

7. Medical Office Project in Strawberry

Preview

The Board will consider the Bently Holdings Master Plan Amendment and Precise Development Plan Amendment, with supplemental use permit findings, for the property located at 1 and 2 Belvedere Place, Mill Valley (APN 043-151-32). On February 23, 2015, the Planning Commission recommended that the Board conditionally approve the amendments and use permit findings to allow up to 47,500 square feet of office space to be utilized for medical services on the property in unincorporated Strawberry. The 1984 Strawberry Hill Master Plan and subsequent Precise Development Plans expressly prohibited the allowance of medical offices. The location is a 10.7-acre lot with two office buildings totaling approximately 100,000 square feet just south and east of Strawberry Village, Redwood Highway and Highway 101. In June 2015, the applicant submitted a revised traffic study. In July 2015, Caltrans identified issues with the applicant's analysis and the County Department of Public Works concurred with the Caltrans comments. Staff recommends continuing the hearing to a future date and support the Department of Public Works requirement for a peer review undertaken by a third-party traffic engineer funded by the applicant to review the applicant’s current traffic study.

Review

The matter was continued to a later undetermined date.

Need more info? See the staff report about the amendments.
