It Never Ends. Novato to make Hamiliton High Density Business District.

Meeting Jan. 5th at 6:30 p.m. 
Hamilton Community Center 
503 S. Palm Drive, Novato

It just never ends. Novato now wants to rezone all of Bel Marin Keys commercial district to 6 stories "for Biomarin." Please come if you can.
Meeting Jan. 5th at 6:30 p.m. At Hamilton Community Center 503 S. Palm Drive to discuss plans to accommodate biotech businesses to revise zoning to allow building heights from 42 feet to 68 feet and to increase in floor area-to -parcel ratios.
These proposed changes will impact the area tremendously as buildings will go higher and higher and the size of buildings will increase in smaller areas.
It will change the industrial park forever! Take a look at the Bio Marin buildings in San Rafael when you drive by on 101 and see what impact these buildings have. Once the zoning is changed more buildings will go higher. If you care about our quality of life, attend the meeting and voice your opinion.


Hamiliton is home to many small "mom and pop" businesses who may be forced to relocate out of Marin due to redevelopment.  Novato is creating a special zoning that will help Bio Marin at the expense of many, many small businesses. It is important to have a diverse economy and not just a few large, public companies which could easily relocate or be acquired leaving the local economy in shambles..
