2. State Grant for Project Homekey

Preview

Agenda Item #2: After convening at 9 a.m., and prior to open time for public expression, the Board will hear a request from the Department of Health and Human Services to accept a grant award of $15,497,200 from the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) to support Project Homekey proposal for the acquisition and rehabilitation of the project site located at 1251 South Eliseo Drive in Larkspur. The site, a former skilled nursing facility, will be owned and operated by Episcopal Community Services (ECS), in partnership with the County. The property represents an opportunity to revitalize an underutilized parcel and serve vulnerable Marin residents experiencing homelessness through evidence-based interventions. Staff recommends that the Board accept the grant award, approve ECS as a subrecipient of the $12,900,000 capital Homekey award to fund acquisition of property, and approve a related one-time budget adjustment of $2,597,200.

4. Ordinance on Renewal of Parks Measure A

Preview

Agenda Item #12: No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will hear a request from County Parks to consider an ordinance re-implementing a one-quarter of 1% transactions and use tax, for parks, open space and sustainable agriculture. On February 8, the Board approved introduction of the ordinance, and approval February 15 would place a renewal measure on the June 7 statewide primary ballot. The Board has shown support for Parks Measure A since it received countywide voter approval in 2012. The tax measure has a sunset date of March 31. Measure A funds were used to reduce or eliminate park fees, provide park passes to lower-income residents, and fund programs that have provided ranger-led events for visitors who might not otherwise have easy access to recreation.

Review

The Board approved placement of the renewal measure on the June 7 ballot.

Need more info? See the staff report and news release about the potential renewal of Parks Measure A.
