About Citizen Marin
Citizen Marin educates, networks, and supports the leaders of neighborhood and homeowner associations concerned about land use planning, zoning, high-density development, infrastructure, and local contro l.
We envision a day when citizens reclaim power, responsibility, and accountability to identify and meet local needs such as affordable or senior housing; rather than top-down, one-size-fits-all state or regional mandates.
Leaders from throughout Marin County who are wrestling with the demands of the Sustainable Communities Strategies, Plan Bay Area, and legislation like SB375 gather on the 2nd Thursday of every month. Together we:
- LEARN what's happening in other communities such as the SMART Station Area Plan in Larkspur, WinCup in Corte Madera, the PDA in Strawberry, or the National Park Service's proposal for a reservation system for Muir Woods.
- SHARE strategies and resources.
- PROMOTE meetings and events where pubic attendance and participation makes a difference.
- CELEBRATE successes.
- NETWORK with others in the county and throughout the 9-county Bay Area and beyond.
Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
