The Marin County Planning Commission will hold public hearing(s) to consider recommending the Board of Supervisors adopt technical and clerical corrections to certain Marin Countywide Plan (CWP) policies and maps to correct and improve their readability and clarity. The technical corrections range from out of sequence program numbering and grammatical mistakes to minor text revisions to provide additional clarification and consistent use of terminology regarding the lowest end of the Countywide Plan density range for land use designations. Another amendment calls for incorporating the Marin County Operational Area Hazard Mitigation Plan by reference into the CWP’s Environmental Hazards element. In addition, amendments to the Nicasio Land Use Policy Map 7.9, Tamalpais Land Use Policy Map 6.2.1, and the Baylands Corridor Maps 2.5a and b are proposed. A revision to Map 7.9 is needed to change a land use designation incorrectly applied to a parcel, from PF-AG1 to AG1, while Map 6.2.1 is updated to reflect annexation of land to the City of Mill Valley. Minor changes to the location of the Baylands Corridor boundary are proposed at the San Rafael Rock Quarry and San Quentin State Prison sites to more accurately reflect existing physical conditions.
