SAN FRANCISCO – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers San Francisco District will host a series of public meetings to receive input intended to help shape development of the Master Plan for the Bay Model Visitor Center in Sausalito, Calif.  

The public meetings will take place Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., at the Bay Model Visitor Center located at 2100 Bridgeway.

A 2020 draft master plan and draft environmental assessment (EA) for the Bay Model are NOW available at our website at: www.spn.usace.army.mil/Master-Plans/. Click on the links in the right-hand column titled “2020 Public Review Draft Master Plan” and “Appendix B: Environmental Assessment” to access the PDFs. Hard copies of the draft master plan and EA are also available at the Sausalito Public Library and the Bay Model.

Comments on the draft master plan and EA can be emailed to: BayModel@usace.army.mil. The public comment period runs from Feb. 3 to March 3, 2020.   

Master Plans are developed with every Corps project and the public is encouraged to provide input.  The plans guide the use of resources for recreation and other purposes and are written to include future possible developments on public land with the goal of ensuring sustainability.

The Bay Model Visitor Center is home to a working hydraulic model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta system and is a fully accessible education center owned and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  It provides a unique opportunity to view the complete bay-delta system at a glance.
