City Hall Parking Lot Repaving Project
The City of Sausalito parking lot is currently being repaved, which includes re-grading of the two accessible parking stalls (to bring them in to compliance with the California Building Code and the Americans with Disabilities Act), new pavement markings, new curb ramps and reconstruction of the Bee Street driveway.  During this next week, there is limited parking available in the lot, and towards the later part of the week there will be days when the lot will be completely closed.

While the upper lot is closed, the City will provide temporary substitute parking off Bee Street and adjacent to the Recreation Department entry for persons with impaired mobility whose vehicles display either valid license plates or a DMV-issued placard identifying a person with a disability.
