2. Affordable Housing Fund for Acquisition Funding

Preview

Agenda Items #5-6: Shortly after the Board convenes at 9 a.m., the Board will hear two requests from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to consider allocations from Marin County’s Affordable Housing Trust Fund (Affordable Housing Fund). First, CDA requests that the Board approve a $6.25 million loan to BRIDGE Housing to be used as acquisition funding for 125 existing units located at 101 Nova Albion Way and 845 Las Gallinas Avenue in San Rafael. Second, CDA requests that the Board approve an $800,000 grant to Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco for acquisition funding for two lots containing four prefabricated homes located on Overlook Drive and Aspen Road in Bolinas. The projects align with goals to provide housing opportunities in areas that that would result in strong economic, environmental, and educational outcomes. There would be no impact to the County General Fund. Staff is requesting that the Board authorize the Board President, subject to County Counsel approval, to execute documents and approve budget adjustments.

Review

The Board approved the funding allocations.

4. Parks Measure A Budget

Preview

Agenda Item #9: The Board will hear a request from the Parks Department to approve revenue, expenditure, and position adjustments to the Parks Measure A budget for fiscal year 2022-23. In June, voters approved reimplementation of a revised version of Measure A, a countywide quarter-cent sale tax. The County's Budget, approved later in June, was developed using only available fund balance and did not account for new revenue from the recently renewed tax measure. The revised balance is $3.8 million.

Review

The Board approved the revenue, expenditure, and position adjustments.

6. Proposed Amendments to Development Code

Preview

NOTE: This will be an online-only joint session of the Board of Supervisors and the Planning Commission. The Board chamber at the Civic Center will be closed. See the Board's meeting archive webpage for guidelines on participation.

Agenda Item #16: No earlier than 5 p.m., the Board and Planning Commission will hear a request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to review amendments to the County Development Code related to the Housing Element update and the Marin County Form Based Code. The County updates its Development Code every two to three years to reset the rules on zoning and subdivisions in unincorporated areas outside of the Pacific coastal zone. Proposed amendments reflect requirements on state Senate Bill (SB) 9 and SB 35, which address developments that include multifamily housing. In May, the Supervisors adopted three interim ordinances on the topic – intended to be temporary – that streamline the review of certain housing projects and adhere to the new state laws.

Review

The Board reviewed the amendments, provided feedback to staff, and discussed dates for future meetings.

Need more info? See the staff report and news release about the amendments to the County Development Code.
