  3. Briefing on the Design of Shoreline Access Areas
    (Brad McCrea) [415/352-3615 bradm@bcdc.ca.gov]
    John Kriken, Chair of BCDC’s Design Review Board, will give a short presentation and lead a discussion on the design of public access and its relationship to shoreline development.
  4. San Quentin State Prison Condemned Inmate Complex (First Review)
    (Karen Wolowicz) [415/352-3669]
    The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal to construct a new 768-celled complex for the housing of 1,152 condemned male inmates at San Quentin State Prison in the County of Marin and an in lieu public access area located in San Quentin Village, 0.75 miles east of the prison. This is the first review by the BCDC Design Review Board. The majority of the proposed housing complex would be built outside of the Commission’s jurisdiction. The Board will review the in lieu public access proposal and will also consider whether the new complex would have impacts on views to the Bay and shoreline from public thoroughfares, such as Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, and other public places. The public access proposal includes the creation of a 2,000-square-foot Main Street view platform, located northeast of the historic San Quentin State Prison Saltwater Pumphouse, including a 10- to 15-foot-wide walkway, up to three concrete benches, an informational kiosk, a garbage can, three parking spaces and safety railings. South of the view platform, along Main Street and on property owned by the County of Marin, a four-foot-wide, 340-foot-long sidewalk is proposed. The sidewalk would be paved with curbs on both sides.
    Members of the public who are interested in receiving a full project summary may contact Karen Wolowicz at 415/352-3669.
