The Bolinas Community Public Utility District (“BCPUD”) was formed in 1967 pursuant to a resolution of the Marin County Board of Supervisors which consolidated two previously existing districts: the Bolinas Beach Public Utility District (formed in 1927 to serve the Big Mesa) and the Bolinas Public Utility District (formed in 1935 to serve the Little Mesa and downtown areas). The BCPUD is located in unincorporated western Marin County, immediately to the south of the Point Reyes National Seashore and to the west of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The BCPUD and has a jurisdictional boundary of approximately 2.6 square miles as depicted in the map below:
As a public utility district, the BCPUD’s governance authority is codified in the California Public Utilities Act of 1913, which empowers the district to provide a range of municipal services. At present, the BCPUD directly or indirectly provides water, sewer, solid waste, drainage, and parks and recreation services within its boundaries. The district is governed by a five-member Board of Directors who are elected by registered voters (or appointed in-lieu of a contested election) to staggered four-year terms.
