Recommended Changes to County Code

Board of Supervisors

Meeting Date: 12/18/2018


Not before 10:30 a.m., the Board will conduct merit hearings for two requests from the Department of Public Works, both recommended changes to the Marin County Code. The first is a revision to Chapter 24.04 related to parking and loading standards, to align with the Countywide Plan's Housing Element. The revision would reduce parking requirements for most facilities other than single-family detached units and are intended to encourage a variety of housing types, reduce vehicle dependency and reflect updated state-level regulations. The second change is an amendment to Chapter 2.18 related to the delegation authority to award informal construction contracts up to $200,000. The State of California has voted to raise the minimum limits for projects. The ordinance amendment would accommodate the increased limit and clarify that public projects under $60,000 may be performed by the County's own forces, negotiated contract or by purchase order.


The Board conducted the hearings and approved both changes to the County Code.
