Marin General Hospital Replacement Building Project
The Marin County Healthcare District, as lead agency for the project, is in the process of completing the environmental review process for the Marin General Hospital Replacement Building Project. The proposed project includes a five-story, 300,000 square-foot hospital replacement building; a five-story, 100,000 square-foot ambulatory services building; and two parking structures. Every aspect of the hospital will meet or exceed the latest state-mandated standards for earthquake safety. The Final Environmental Impact Report will be discussed by the Marin County Planning Commission at a public workshop in February.

How to Review: The EIR has not yet been completed/made public, but the electronic files of the DEIR are still available online at the Marin Healthcare District’s website at www.marinhealthcare.org.

Register Your Cell Phone Now to Receive Emergency Alerts
You can now register your cell phone or VoIP (voice over internet protocol) phone to receive emergency alerts sent by call, text, or email from the County of Marin. Emergency situations may include flooding, wildfires, and subsequent evacuations; public safety incidents including crimes that affect your neighborhood; and post-disaster information about shelters, transportation, or supplies.

This service has been launched by the Marin County Sheriff’s Office of Emergency Services as a new important update of the Telephone Emergency Notification System (TENS). TENS is a high-speed communications system that can quickly notify members of the public by phone of critical emergency information in situations where property or human life is in danger.

Listed and unlisted/blocked Marin County landline phone numbers are already included in the emergency notification system. Cell phone and VoIP numbers are not included and require your registration.  This service is available to you if you live, work or go to school in Marin County and are at least 18 years of age.
