Here comes the ABAG Money! Important meeting Thursday at 7pm

A meeting potentially very relevant to those concerned about the  High Density Housing in Marinwood/Lucas Valley is occurring this Thursday, 7pm at the Marin Civic Center, details below. If you can make time this looks like a very interesting meeting where the dots are likely to be joined on how One Bay Area Funding is being released and controlled - the money trail may be revealed...



It is important that local Marinwood/Lucas Valley Citizens start showing up at these meetings and voice your concerns.  Remember,  these are the ABAG funding grants that caused the Board of Supervisors to "sell out" Marinwood/Lucas Valley to developers.  They are hoping you will stay home and don't bother.

Proposed project:

Marinwood Village


TLC There are two major components to the project: 1) reducing the width of the Marinwood Ave right of way, which is currently 89' and

vastly oversized for the neighborhood context; and 2) intersection improvements at Marinwood Ave and Miller Creek Rd, to

signalized or control traffic by means of a roundabout. The goal of the project is to ensure strong pedestrian and vehicular

connections to the redeveloped Marinwood Plaza Shopping Center, a roughly 5 acre infill site in unincorporated Marin County. One

of the keys to realizing the vision of a neighborhood village is to change the character of public right of ways to transform them into

inviting, walkable, bikable avenues, that also adequately handle vehicular traffic and parking.
