WHO WE ARE & OUR MISSION.
The Sausalito Working Waterfront Coalition is a 501(c)4 nonprofit corporation and social welfare organization. We are made up of a diverse community of local business owners, employees, property owners, artists, and residents that supports the legacy of Sausalito’s waterfront history and culture while promoting maritime, artistic and light industrial innovation.
We believe our history of ship building, related maritime activities, technical innovation and our local artist community are the key link to sausalito’s unique character and quality of life.
Our mission is to Communicate and Safeguard the legacy of the historic maritime and cultural heritage of the Marinship and to Promote the continued growth of an innovation zone with roots in maritime, artistic, and light industrial fabrication.
We advocate for Sausalito's Working Waterfront, providing information relevant to the preservation of maritime businesses, industrial activities, and the artist community in the Marinship. We will honor the people and places of Sausalito whose legacy created our maritime heritage, and continue to promote innovation and education for a thriving future.
ADVOCACY & ISSUES.
Sausalito is currently undergoing a review of its General Plan, a roadmap for Sausalito's future development path through 2040. A multiple-year public process, the General Plan will either serve as:
A vehicle to protect the Working Waterfront maritime businesses and artists while encouraging an environment that continues to foster Marinship's legacy of technological innovation and in doing so celebrates our city's quality of life and unique cultural heritage;
It will serve as a tool for property owners to up-zone the Working Waterfront for short-term profit at the cost of Sausalito's quality of life and heritage, embarking Sausalito on its inevitable march to becoming the next Fisherman's Wharf.
