The Marin County Board of Supervisors will hold public hearing(s) to consider adoption of technical and clerical corrections to certain Marin Countywide Plan (CWP) policies and maps to make corrections and/or improve readability and clarity. These edits range from correcting program numbering and grammatical mistakes to minor text revisions to provide additional clarification and consistent use of terminology regarding the lowest end of the CWP density range for land use designations and corrections to maps. 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 2-5b are proposed. A revision to Map 7.9 in the Nicasio planning area 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. The Board of Supervisors will also consider adopting an addendum to the 2007 certified Marin Countywide Plan Final Environmental Impact Report pursuant to sections 15162 and 15164 of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The Addendum finds that the proposed CWP Amendments comprise minor and technical changes to the CWP Policies evaluated in the Certified Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) and that no new or more severe impacts not addressed in the Final EIR would result from the adoption of the CWP Amendments.
