Livable and Lovable Transit Oriented Development coming to Marin just like Malaysia, Hong Kong, Bejiing and Singapore!

Check out this hooky promotional video for transit oriented development put out by a Malaysian government office.  x=

It promotes the vision of UC Berkeley Architect, Peter Calthorpe who proposed designs for St Vincents/Silveira in the 1990s and is consulting Marin for San Quentin,  Strawberry, and Marin City.

ABAG/MTC still has all property within the 1/2 mile along the 101 corridor inside a proposed  PRIORITY DEVELOPMENT AREA which will mean more Wincup style apartment blocks and the destruction of single family neighborhoods.  Marinwood has been termed a "Transit Oriented Town Center" and is planned to have upto 4500 homes along the 1/2 mile strip of land next to the 101 Freeway.

Do any of these photos in the video look like a place in Marin where you would like to live?   

We must Save Marin Again!

P.S. Peter Calthorpe doesn't live in a TOD.  No...  He lives in a multimillion dollar gated estate in Berkeley Hills.
It PAYS to be "smart".
