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 first issued March 16 to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

Review

The Board heard the report.

3. Appeal on San Geronimo Creek Restoration

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to consider the Snell appeal of the San Geronimo Creek Restoration Project Creek Permit (CP 20-012), 5800 Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, San Geronimo (APN 172-372-14). A permit applicant would like to remove existing infrastructure including Roy's Pools fish ladder and sheet metal weirs, and create a new channel gradient with engineered streambed materials to allow fish passage and hydraulic connectivity. A failing pedestrian bridge would be removed as well. An appeal was received May 4, 2020, and asserts that the permit violates County Codes, violates the San Geronimo Valley Community Plan, and contradicts the Marin Countywide Plan. Staff recommends that the Board receive public testimony and consider adopting a resolution denying the petition to appeal the creek permit.

Review

The Board received public testimony and adopted the resolution denying the petition to appeal the creek permit.
