1. Youth Commission Update

Preview

Shortly after the Board convenes at 9 a.m., the Board will hear an update from the Marin County Youth Commission. The commission was created to demonstrate the value of youth through responsible, positive youth action; to empower youth with skills, information, and organizational support so that participants can significantly impact the political, educational, recreational, and social service systems in their community. The commission provides the Board of Supervisors with the views of youths on County matters affecting young people. It advocates for County policies that promote and utilize youths as planners and decision makers.

2. Amending Parks Fee Schedule

Preview

The Board will hear a request from Marin County Parks to adopt a resolution amending the 2019 Marin County Parks fee schedule, reducing the summer weekend and holiday park entrance fees at Paradise Beach Park, McNear’s Beach Park, and Stafford Lake Park, and eliminating the swimming pool admission fee at McNear’s Beach Park. Summer weekend and holiday vehicle parking fees have been $10 at the three parks, and this resolution proposes to cut the cost to $5. The Board recommended a reduction after hearing the results of Parks’ resident survey earlier this year.

The Board adopted the resolution.

3. Workplan to Preserve Housing Affordability

Preview

The Board will hear an update from the Community Development Agency (CDA) on the Board’s workplan to preserve housing affordability and prevent displacement. The Board approved a workplan in February 2016. The update will include progress reports on the acquisition of multifamily rental properties for preservation as affordable units, landlord incentives, renter source-of-income protections, short-term rental regulations, and several other initiatives. Since approving the original workplan, the Board introduced a rental housing dispute resolution ordinance, reduced barriers to the creation of accessory dwelling units, and added a program to enhance County inspections of multifamily rental properties. In the coming year, CDA staff will continue to administer the existing programs.

Review

The Board heard the update and received the report about the workplan.

4. Speed Limit Adjustment in San Geronimo

Preview

The Board will conduct the first reading of an ordinance establishing speed limits on portions of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in San Geronimo. Residents have expressed concerns about speeding on Drake in the vicinity of Nicasio Valley Road/San Geronimo Valley Drive West. There is a 55 mph speed limit on Drake in that area and it drops to 35 mph further west near Forest Knolls. Public Works staff conducted speed surveys and recommends creating a 45 mph zone near the intersection near intersection of concern. The San Geronimo Valley Planning Group supports the change. Staff recommends that the Board schedule a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. July 16.

Review

The Board conducted the first reading on the speed limit proposal and scheduled a merit hearing for 10:30 a.m. July 16.
