Skydiving Business Operating Permit for Gnoss Field

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 10/18/2016


The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to consider approving the Skydive Golden Gate Inc. Airport Business Operating Permit, and authorize Public Works Director to consent to a future sublease with Skydive Golden Gate. The business is interested in offering tandem skydiving operations at Gnoss Field in Novato, which is owned by the County of Marin and operated by the County's Department of Public Works. Lacking specific skydiving business operating standards in the aviation section of the Marin County Code, the Board approved an ordinance in May 2016. The County has reached agreement on business operating terms. It is estimated that the annual airport revenue from this business would be less than $5,000 per year. 


The Board approved the permit and authorized the future sublease.
