2. County Early Learning and Care Needs Assessment

Preview

The Board will hear a request to receive the 2018-2019 Marin County Early Learning and Care Needs Assessment. The assessment, prepared by the Marin County Child Care Commission, is a follow-up to a 2013 assessment. It presents a snapshot of the various aspects of the state of local child care and early education. It includes the demographic characteristics of kids and their families, employment and income statistics, the costs of child care, and child care supply and demand. The Child Care Commission, which approved the report at its own meeting in November 2018, must submit the assessment to the Board for approval prior to submitting it to the California Department of Education.

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to adopt a resolution regarding 2019-2020 Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account Revenues from the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 1). Now entering its third cycle, SB1 will provide Marin County with an estimated $3.83 million for transportation improvement projects slated for the 2020 construction season. Following the accountability measures of SB1, the Department of Public Works has identified a list of 10 potential road projects in unincorporated areas of the county that could utilize the state funding. The proposed list targets sections of roads in Dillion Beach, unincorporated Mill Valley, Sleepy Hollow, and Kentfield.

5. Results of Resident Survey

Preview

No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will hear a presentation from the County Administrator's Office about the 2018 Marin County Resident Survey. The County has been eager to receive a report card from its residents as a measure of customer service and to compare results to those from counties nationwide. The results provide data with which the County can dive deeper in some areas using other tools, such as focus groups or listening sessions. The County mailed 3,200 printed surveys to a random selection of households earlier this winter, and followed with an online opt-in survey. This presentation provides a summary of results. 

Review

The Board heard the presentation and accepted the report.

6. Amendments to Development Code

Preview

No earlier than 2:30 p.m., the Board will conduct a hearing to consider an ordinance adopting amendments to Marin County Title 22, known as the Development Code. Since residents' needs change over time and new federal and state laws often affect what the county government does, the County normally updates its Development Code every two to three years. The Development Code relates to zoning and subdivisions in the unincorporated areas in Marin that are outside of the coastal zone. Staff from the Community Development Agency (CDA) drafted amendments to the code, and the Marin County Planning Commission approved them in December 2018. 

Review

The Board conducted the hearing and adopted the ordinance.
