Update from Supervisor Katie Rice
The State of California formally announced that 1251 S. Eliseo Homekey proposal has been awarded. The site will be owned and operated by Episcopal Community Services (ECS) in partnership with the County of Marin.
A hearing of the Board of Supervisors will be held this Tuesday, February 15, to consider formally accepting the grant and confirm the County’s commitment of match funding. The meeting begins at 9 a.m., and the topic is first on the agenda.
Participation can be virtual or in-person, but please note that attendance in the Board chamber (Suite 330) is limited to 100 people given public health restrictions related to COVID-19. In the event the chamber reaches capacity, we will allow those waiting in alternative areas the opportunity to walk-in and provide comment at the appropriate time. The full agenda and information on how to access the meeting can be found on the meeting archive.
