The City has prioritized holding City Council, Planning Commission and Design Review Commission meetings to conduct essential business during the County of Marin's Stay at Home Order. In compliance with the local and state stay at home orders, and as allowed by Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-29-20, the City will not offer an in-person meeting location for the public to attend these meeting and instead will hold them via teleconference.
