Plan Bay Area 2040 "Secret" report to Marin County Supervisors 5/23/2017

Brian Crawford gives a "for your ears only" report at the May 23, 2017 Marin County Board of Supervisors on Plan Bay Area 2040. It is a TWENTY FIVE YEAR plan for all of Marin's 550,000 residents but somehow, this important report could not have been presented too publicly so they could avoid negative publicity. Marin IJ reporter , Richard Halstead was present but it is uncertain that he will cover it fairly or at all. Comments from the public are due June 1, 2017. There has been very little coverage in the local paper. The plan is a high watermark of corruption and crony capitalism flying under the banner of "environmental protection" and strips citizens from democratic decisions that affects their neighborhood and community. Despite Supervisor Kate Sears interest in Sea Level rise, she made no comment on the plan for housing in the FEMA flood zone and displacement in Marin City. The supervisors voted unanimously to support it.

  1. I have lived here 17 years, and due to rising rental costs, will need to move. Even though I work full time at a good job, half of my monthly pay goes to rent. Not sustainable, very disappointing, and very depressing, especially in light of the 'low income housing" being pushed. YES middle class people are being pushed out, very rapidly. Even in families with both parties working .... the price for housing is now out of reach. The flight from California intensifies.
