Yes Indeed, the County is dumping affordable housing in Marinwood Lucas Valley

According to the staff report for the 1/14/2013 Planning Commission Meeting, they ADMIT that they are concentrating affordable housing in Unincorporated Marin (71% in Marinwood-Lucas Valley). In addition, it can be anticipated that other property in the Marinwood Priority Development Area (all property East of Las Gallinas) will be rezoned for Urban infill housing.

From the staff report found at Staff report for 1/14/2013 meeting

Effects on housing element EIR:



2007 Countywide Plan EIR identified Impact 4.1-2 (Growth and Concentration of Population) as a significant unavoidable project and cumulative impact, because development consistent with the Countywide Plan would induce growth within the unincorporated area.

Previously adopted Mitigation Measure 4.1-2 would reduce this impact, but not to a less-than significant level, because growth and concentration of population would still occur in the
unincorporated are as a result of development consistent with the Countywide Plan.



While properties proposed for residential development in the 2012 Draft Housing Element could be
 developed at higher densities than were analyzed in the 2007 Countywide Plan EIR, previously
adopted mitigation measures and Countywide Plan policies and programs would continue to
apply. Therefore, this would remain a significant unavoidable impact, but would not be
substantially more severe than the impact analyzed in the 2007 Countywide Plan EIR.


Who is kidding who with these reports? This is all about NIMBYS in San Anselmo, Kentfield, Ross, Tiburon, dumping their affordable housing allocations on us.

According to state law, it is not permissible to concentrate housing in a single jurisdiction. It must be spread COUNTY WIDE.

Do not be fooled by those who say, "We must do our fair share". We have 6000 residents and are only 2% of Marin's population. Why on earth must we be forced to surrender our community to 71% of all affordable housing in unincorporated Marin?

Where are our political leaders?

Wake up and Smell the Coffee. Sign our petition. Talk with your neighbors. Come to our meetings.

You can make a difference.
