Council Moves to Allow Live Aboards

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

At last night's City Council Meeting, the Council voted unanimously to direct staff to revise the City's Marina Regulations found in the Municipal Code to allow for live aboards.  Boat owners are currently not allowed to rent out their boats for short-term rentals, and such will continue to be prohibited in the revised regulations.  It is thought that having live aboards or 24/7 living at the Marina will further recreational boating by providing enhanced security.  A public hearing will be scheduled at a later date to establish a "Live Aboard License Fee".

City Hall Roof-Mounted PV System

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Update: Thursday, July 12 - The power in City Hall will be out tomorrow beginning at 12 noon in order to interconnect the new PV system. 

Unfortunately, our computers and credit card machines will also be down during the planned shut down.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Update: Monday, July 9 - The City Hall roof-mounted PV installation project is now approximately 90% complete.  The major work remaining is a temporary shutdown of PG&E power so the PV system can be interconnected.  We again thank you for your patience (esp. to those that frequent the Dog Park) as this project is completed!

The City Council has had an interest in constructing a photovoltaic system on the City Hall roof for over a decade, and we’re excited to announce that it’s now happening!  Over the course of the next two months, contractor Sunterra Solar will be working to install a 150 kW system (AC rating), and they will be using the City Hall parking lot near the Dog Park as their staging area.  Therefore, we ask that Dog Park users please refrain from parking in the spaces indicated as restricted with signs and barricades, as those are necessary for the contractor’s materials and equipment, which include a lift.  We look forward to having the system installed, which will allow for shedding more of the City’s load dependence from the public utility.  The current system does not include a commercial solar battery storage system, but in the event the Council does choose to install one, we would see even greater independence from the utility by saving excess power generated during lower demand periods.  If you have any questions about this project, please contact the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.
