One of the complaints we hear often is regarding the condition of our roadway medians. The Town of San Anselmo has three major medians – Sir Francis Drake Boulevard (SFD) from Bolinas Avenue to the Hub, Red Hill Avenue from the Hub to Sequoia Drive, and Center Boulevard from Madrone Avenue to San Anselmo Avenue. All three medians are in need of improvements. The Department of Public Works is working on a Master Plan for the three medians with the goal of developing a comprehensive plan to install new irrigation, landscaping, trees, drainage and bioretention.The Master Plan creates the vision for the medians to move forward to obtain funding, design, and ultimately construction. The medians have recently been identified in a Storm Water Resource Plan (SWRP) which helps make them grant-eligible for future funding. The medians are not only important aesthetically but could play an integral part in cleaning storm water runoff into our creeks, minimizing localized flooding (not regional flooding), and help to recharge groundwater if built correctly with bioswales and bioretention. This is also important to insure that the Town complies with current and future mandated storm water regulations.Between potential grant sources, private donors, and other means of funding the Town is endeavoring to rehabilitate the medians and keep them as a beautiful asset in Town. The Median Master Plan is just one step in this direction and ultimately funding for not only construction but long term maintenance needs to be found.Two community meetings were held on February 16 and October 12, 2017. At the March 27, 2018 Council meeting, staff will bring forward a draft plan. For more information please visit: http://ca-sananselmo2.civicplus.com/1214/San-Anselmo-Median-Master-Plan
