BRIDGEWAY COMMONS RESIDENTIAL CONDOMINIUMS – 1755 BRIDGEWAY. A Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Bridgeway Commons Residential Condominiums Project has been prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Project, located at 1755 Bridgeway, proposes redevelopment of two parcels zoned R-3 (Multiple Family Residential) with 16 residential condominiums. All existing buildings and structures (buildings with addresses: 1745 Bridgeway, 1751 Bridgeway, 1757 Bridgeway, and 160 Filbert Avenue) on the property would be demolished and replaced with two multi-level buildings containing 16 condominium units (one three-bedroom and 15 two-bedroom units) and 32 on-site parking spaces contained within a parking garage.

676- 686 BRIDGEWAY
On November 16, the Historic Landmarks Board (HLB) and the Planning Commission will conduct a joint public hearing for a project seeking to remodel 676-686 Bridgeway. The structure is located within the downtown historic district and was formerly the site of the Fine Art Etc. gallery and the Seven Seas Restaurant. The building housed Sausalito's post office during the late nineteenth century.

The project at 676-686 Bridgeway proposes a comprehensive remodel of the structure and the conversion of three existing first-level storefronts into two storefronts. A remodel of second-level residential units is also proposed. The design was inspired by the property's original form as two separate buildings: an unreinforced brick structure (one of the first two-story brick buildings in Sausalito) and a wood-frame structure. The proposed street-level businesses are an apparel store and a candy store/dessert shop.

The Planning Commission at their October 6, 2016 meeting approved a remodel of the former Marin Theater located at 101 Caledonia Street that includes char. The proposed project includes a remodel of the exterior and the conversion of the former three-screen theater into a mixed-use structure containing a two-screen theater and restaurant on the ground level and an office space on the upper level.

MARINSHIP SPECIFIC PLAN STEERING COMMITTEE. On May 7, 2013 the Sausalito City Council formed the Marinship Specific Plan Steering Committee. The purpose of the Steering Committee is to work with staff and a consultant to accomplish the following goals:
• Evaluate the Marinship Specific Plan (MSP) using studies already completed on behalf of the City and any new
  studies as recommended by the Steering Committee to determine to what degree that the MSP is adding to the 
  health of the City and to the degree that is necessary to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing.
• Identify areas of the Marinship where improvements can be made to the MSP to add to the health of the City and
  to avoid the negative consequences of doing nothing.
• Develop a community engagement plan and a property owner outreach program.
• Recommend changes to the MSP as required.

The City Council has adopted rules regarding ADUs. An ADU, also known as a "mother-in-law" or "granny" unit, is an additional living unit that has separate kitchen, sleeping, and bathroom facilities. An ADU may be attached to or detached from the primary residential unit on a lot. As of January 2013 ADUs are allowed in all residential neighborhoods under certain conditions. In addition, existing ADUs which were installed without permits could apply for and be legalized by the City under a temporary amnesty program between January 2013 and March 2014 . After the amnesty period closed, all unpermitted ADUs which had not been granted amnesty are subject to code enforcement. To view Ordinance No. 1209, which regulates ADUs, please click here.

For information on how to apply for a planning permit for a NEW unit, please download the New ADU Permit Brochure, which explains the permitting process, submittal requirements and standards the ADU must meet. You can find the application form for a New Accessory Dwelling Unit Permit and the fee schedule here.

Calls/emails/inquires about the ADU process, will be confidential and anonymous. Contact Lilly Schinsing, Administrative Analyst, at (415) 289-4134 or with any questions.


UPDATED STANDARDS FOR MULTI-FAMILY ZONED PROPERTIES. Effective April 18, 2014, there are new regulations for residential units in two and multi-family Zoning Districts (the R-2, R-2-2.5 and R-3 Zoning Districts). For full code amendments see Ordinance No. 1217 adopted by the Sausalito City Council on March 18, 2014. For a summary of how these new regulations affect projects in the R-2, R-2-2.5 and R-3 Zoning Districts click here.


MUNICIPAL CODE AMENDMENTS. Since the adoption of the Zoning Ordinance in 2003, staff has compiled a list of issues that would benefit from clarification. The list includes issues raised by residents, architects and other interested community members. Staff brought the list of issues to the City Council on July 12, 2011 and recommended they be split into two categories: (1) those issues that are ready for immediate review ("Minor Amendments") and (2) those issues that require additional staff work and review by the Legislative Committee ("Policy Amendments"). The Minor Amendments were approved by the City Council on February 28, 2012 and became effective on March 29, 2012.
