2. Workforce Housing Joint Powers Agreement

Preview

Agenda Item #7: Shortly after convening at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to receive the Oak Hill Workforce Housing Joint Powers Agreement Informational Report and review the draft Memorandum of Understanding. Oak Hill is a proposed housing development on 8.5 unused state-owned acres near San Quentin State Prison. The proposal is to build 250 affordable units overseen by two nonprofit housing agencies mostly for public school employees and County of Marin employees. Staff recommends that the Board receive the report and provide feedback to staff.

3. Civil Grand Jury Response on Affordable Housing

Preview

Agenda Item #8: The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator for Board concurrence and adoption of a response to a 2021-22 Marin County Civil Grand Jury report titled "Affordable Housing: Time for Collaboration in Marin” (June 24, 2022). County staff agreed with nine findings, wholly disagreed with one, and will not implement one because it is not warranted or reasonable in the recommended timeframe.

Review

The Board concurred and adopted the response.

4. Coroner Division Fees

Preview

Agenda Item #9: No earlier than 10 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the Sheriff’s Office to conduct public hearing to consider implementing revised coroner fees from $300 per case/transport to $360 and rescind resolutions or other actions previously establishing a schedule of coroner fees to be backdated and effective on September 1. The increase will make the services cost-neutral for the County. Fees were last reassessed and increased in 2019. Staff recommends that the Board conduct the hearing, adopt a resolution and approve recision of prior resolutions.

Review

The Board conducted the hearing and approved the revised fees and the recision of prior resolutions.

5. Restrictions on Parking on Point San Pedro Road

Preview

Agenda Item #10: The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to adopt a traffic resolution establishing a no-parking zone along a portion of Point San Pedro Road at Bayside Park in unincorporated San Rafael. Based on survey results, imposition of the parking restriction and the resulting displacement of vehicles currently parking along the park to the residential section adjacent to the park would still provide for more than ample parking availability for both park users and residents.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.
