On April 14, 2016, formal applications were submitted to the City for the proposed new development. At this point, the City is reviewing the project plans and studies to review and understand the the project scope and determine completeness of the application.
A Neighborhood Meeting was scheduled and occurred on Wednesday, May 18, 2016 at 6pm. The purpose of this meeting was for the applicant to present the project to the community and answer questions and solicit feedback on the application. This neighborhood meeting was conducted at the Four Points Sheraton, Marin Ballroom, at 1010 Northgate Dr. This was not a city sponsored meeting, but rather a meeting the City requires that applicants for large development proposals conduct to present their project to the community, answer questions and solicit feedback. The City was in attendance to take notes on the comments. Approximately 200 persons were in attendance and the general feedback was opposition and concern with the development, primarily related to the scale and mass of the proposed development and potential impacts on traffic and schools.
Once the application is deemed complete for processing, the project will be reviewed by the Design Review Board (DRB) and Planning Commission. Notices of these meetings will be mailed 15 days in advance and posted on the project site and published in the Marin IJ. There is no ETA on the public meetings at this point.
On July 1, 2016, revised project plans were submitted by the applicant in response to the incompleteness letter. Plan revisions and additional technical studies were submitted. These revised plans were distributed to city department and outside agencies on July 5th, for their review and comment.
