2. Administrator's Report on COVID-19 Response

Preview

Shortly after the Board convenes at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a report from the County Administrator and possibly other County staff about the local COVID-19 response. The County proclaimed a local emergency and a public health emergency in early March, and since then staff has worked in an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to coordinate public response efforts. A local shelter-in-place order was issued in March 16 to help limit the spread of COVID-19. A new sheltering order was issued March 31 and is in effect until May 3. 

Review

The Board heard the report.

3. Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account Revenues

Review

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to consider adopting a resolution accepting $3,827,265 in State Road Maintenance and Rehabilitation Account revenues, related to annual allocation of funds from the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 (Senate Bill 1). The bill provides $54 million in revenue over 10 years, including an estimated $4.1 million each year to the County of Marin. To accept the state allotment, the County must expend a percentage of its discretionary funding on road maintenance, and the County has met that requirement. 

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.

4. Choosing Developer for Former Coast Guard Housing Facility

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to review proposals related to the future reuse of the Coast Guard Property located at 100 Commodore Webster Drive, Point Reyes Station. (This item was postponed from the March 17 meeting, at the start of the COVID-19 emergency.) With 36 townhomes and an eight-unit single-room-occupancy-style barracks, the base formerly served as home to dozens of officers and their families. Since the Coast Guard designated the facility as surplus in 2014, the local community has sought to convert the units to permanently affordable homes for families with children. In August 2019, the Board adopted a resolution finding that the purchase is exempt from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and issued a notice to the Coast Guard of intent to purchase the property. The Board adopted that resolution, and in September 2019 the Board President was authorized to execute an offer to purchase and contract of sale for the facility. Staff received two responses, one from EAH Housing and another from the Community Land Trust Association of West Marin (CLAM) and Eden Housing. Staff requests that the Board review proposals, select a developer, and direct staff to negotiate an agreement with the developer. 

Review

The Board reviewed the proposals and voted to select the Community Land Trust Association of West Marin (CLAM) and Eden Housing as the developers of the property.
