San Marin - Upcoming Meetings - Novato Blvd/San Marin Drive Intersection 02/12, Comstock Commons Neighborhood Meeting, 02/19, San Andreas Site Meeting 02/28

Dear San Marin Neighbors,

Just want to inform you of upcoming meetings for three ‘POTENTIAL’ projects in the San Marin neighborhood:
Novato Blvd and San Marin Drive Intersection, Comstock Commons (south/east corner of San Andreas and San Marin Drive, the old Texaco Station Site) and San Andreas School Site 2nd Neighborhood meeting.

1)      Novato Blvd and San Marin Drive Intersection, 6pm, Tuesday, 02/12, City Council Meeting.  Item J.2.

This is to request City Council’s approval for the staff to start studying traffic concerns at the intersection of Novato Blvd and San Marin Drive and come up with recommendations to address the concerns.  

From Project Initiation Report - “The pedestrian and bicyclist safety concerns identified in this project were first brought to the City Engineer by San Marin High School ninth grade student, Ashley Leonard and her Girl Scout Project Advisor, Paul LaPerriere. In addition, the Draft Novato General Plan 2035 Update Traffic Analysis identified the intersection of Novato Boulevard and San Marin Drive/Sutro Avenue as requiring traffic mitigation. The City of Novato Engineering Division proposes to initiate a new Capital Improvement Project to improve the intersection of Novato Boulevard and San Marin Drive/Sutro Avenue.”
Please see item J.2. of City Council Meeting Agenda for 02/12.

J. General Business.

J.2. Adopt a resolution amending the 2018/19 Budget to add Capital Improvement Project #19-009, intersection improvements at Novato Blvd and San Marin Dr/Sutro Avenue, to the Capital Improvement Program

2)      Comstock Commons (200 San Marin Drive, South-East corner of San Andreas and San Marin Drive, the old Texaco Station Site). 7pm, Tuesday, 02/19, at Margaret Todd Center – Room #3

This is the 2nd Neighborhood Meeting for NUSD to come and  update San Marin Neighbors on the results of the Feasibility Study conducted during the past few months by City of Novato.  The meeting was tentatively scheduled for March 7th but is now rescheduled for 02/28 due to staff availability.

Please mark your calendar and attend the neighborhood meeting.

A Favor – Please let your San Marin Neighbors know about these meetings and also ask them to email me if they would like to be put on the email list.
