4. Rent Relief for Gnoss Field Tenants

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to approve an additional one-month rent relief for all County aviation business leases, ground leases and County hangar leases at the Gnoss Field Airport, related to the extended runway closure associated with the runway reconstruction project. Unforseen challenges with the construction project created a delay in the project, causing financial hardship on businesses. The Board approved one-month rent relief in September and November, and with this request more rent relief would be applied to the March rents for all tenants in good standing. No County General Funds are used at the airport.

Review

The Board approved the rent relief.

5. Update of Green Building Ordinance

Preview

The Board will hear the first reading of an ordinance amending Title 19 of the Marin County Code updating the County’s green building requirements. The County has been requiring residential projects to comply with green building and increased energy efficiency requirements since 2002. The proposed amendments to the 2010 Green Building Ordinance pertain to increased sustainability, flexibility in compliance options, more clarity and concise language, and countywide code consistency. 
Staff recommends that the Board schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. February 27.

Review

The Board heard the first reading of the ordinance and scheduled the merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. February 27.

Staff recommends that the speed limit be increased from 30 mph to 35 mph between Paradise Valley Road and Olema Bolinas Road and remain at the existing limit of 30 mph between Shoreline Highway and Paradise Valley Road. Staff recommends that the Board schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. February 27.

7. Medicinal Cannabis Delivery-Only Business License Fees

Preview

No earlier than 10:30 a.m., the Board will conduct a hearing to consider a resolution establishing fees for the processing of medicinal cannabis delivery-only retailer applications and licenses. The Supervisors unanimously approved a delivery-only medicinal cannabis licensing ordinance in November 2017. Approval of a fee schedule is one of the early steps in allowing up to four such delivery-only businesses to operate the unincorporated areas of the County starting later this year. CDA proposes a fee of $125 for retailer applicant prescreening and $3,000 for applicant review. If a qualified applicant is among the four chosen for tentative approval by County staff, there would be a $7,000 fee for full site review.

Review

The Board conducted the hearing and adopted the resolution.

9. Signage for Short-Term Rentals

Preview

No earlier than 2:30 p.m., the Board will conduct the first reading of an ordinance regarding the posting of signs identifying short-term rentals, payment of taxes and business licenses. If approved following a merit hearing, the ordinance would require the posting of a small sign within eyesight of the street and information about the payment of taxes, business licenses, and contact information for the owner or property manager. The proposed changes would be enacted for a one-year pilot period and only affect short-term rental properties in the unincorporated parts of Marin. Staff recommends that the Board schedule a merit hearing for 1:30 p.m. March 13.

Review

The Board conducted the first reading of the ordinance and scheduled a merit hearing for 1:30 p.m. March 13.
