Marinwood CSD objects to planning its future.
The Marinwood CSD has steadfastly objected to the assembly of citizens for the discussion of the future of Marinwood and design review. Marinwood is the subject of intensive urban development. Prior Supervisor Susan Adams quietly submitted Marinwood for a Priority Development Area and to take up to 80% of all low income subsidized housing for unincorporated Marin. The previous three boards have quashed all public discussion of these plans despite the radical transformation of the community that development will bring. It is indeed curious why a citizen's committee would be so threatening. I believe that it is seen as dangerous to the established CSD power structure. Why shouldn't the community have discussions about its future? The CSD beileves its only role is to spend money and disavows civic involvement in important affairs that will affect our taxes, schools, roads and even our local government
