Marin Sanitary Service Facility

Marin Sanitary Service has requested an amendment to its master use permit and development plan to accommodate existing and anticipated future changes to its 82+ acre municipal waste management facility operations. The project would allow for existing operations at the site, plan for future waste to energy conversion facilities, would preserve over 50 acres of open space lands, and would legalize expansion of existing ancillary public storage container uses as interim activities on the site.

Current Status:

The Planning Commission conducted a public hearing on the project on June 23, 2015.  At this hearing, the Planning Commission  considered the draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration that was prepared for the project, as well the project merits and applications for PD Rezoning, Design Review Permit, Master Use Permit amendment and right-of-way abandonment. The Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared and published for a 30-day public review period, starting on May 18, 2015 and concluding at the Planning Commission hearing on June 23, 2015. At the conclusion of their June 23rd meeting, the Commission ultimately recommended approval of the project to the City Council. Video from the meeting can be viewed at online.

The City Council considered the project at their July 20, 2015 meeting, considering the recommendations of staff and the Planning Commission, holding their own public hearing and then approved the project. To view the meeting proceedings, please visit the video from the meeting.
