  1. Review of Shakespeare at Stinson Progress: Mr. John O'Conner, of the Bolinas Lagoon Watershed Team, stated that various environmental protection agencies had signed a letter sent to Johanna Patri of Marin County Planning and commented that granting of an extension would be in violation of County Resolution 2001-144 as Mr. Trotter had not applied for the extension within the adopted time frame and additionally had not submitted detailed plans as required. Mr. O'Conner expressed concerns regarding the validity of Mr. Trotter's intentions and requested that any extension request be denied. Members of the audience, Mr. Tony Lewis, Mr. Richard Reasoner and Mr. and Mrs. Otis, also requested that the extension request be denied. Mr. Dinges stated that he had conducted an inspection on May 5th, 2003 that he was unsure whether or not Mr. Trotter would be able to comply with all of the required items by the May 15th deadline, and that another compliance walk-through would be held on May 14th with County representative, Johanna Patri. Director Tye excused himself from the Board and left the building. Director Zell conveyed that he hade been advised that SAS had failed the inspection by the Fire Marshall. Director Sapanai stated that any decision making regarding SAS would involve all parties as required in the original agreement. Mr. Trotter stated that SAS was currently under construction, that there was confusion regarding timelines, that SAS had been bogged down with building permits for the last ten months and that building plans had been submitted in March.
