The Next Stage of development of Marin is upzoning Single Family Home Neighborhoods like Portland and Seattle. (Important film for Marin)

Den$ity: Profit Over People in Portland, Oregon from Straw Bale Films on Vimeo.

This is an important film for the people of Marin to watch.  Portland, Oregon is thought to be the "cutting edge" of smart growth policies for densification.   Marin undoubtedly is heading this way.

Last year, Planning Commissioners openly talked about the elimination of "racist" single family home zoning.  They contend that building apartments is the only way neighborhoods can become more inclusive.

The Community Development Department has been advocating "densification" policies along the "101 Priority Development Area".  Although it is no longer "official" planning is underway to urbanize all areas within 1/2 mile of the 101 corridor.
