Action Plan Download
Sausalito developed its action plan through a unanimous vote from its City Council. The plan is unique in that it opts to include houseboat communities that are contiguous, but technically outside the city limits. The action plan identifies 11 initial priorities, and will focus closely on investing in providing better transportation options for older adults, identifying affordable housing for older adults, and improving pedestrian safety with enhanced crosswalks and better lighting.
