We stand for...
We stand for town character. We stand for livable places. Our mission is to create and maintain the vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable places that make Marin, in combination with its magnificent open space, such a great place.
The Grand Bargain for a Livable Marin - Part 1
Marin County is a model to the nation of how to manage growth and save the natural environment from sprawl. We work to ensure Marin learns from the best places our forebears have left us to find out how we help them thrive.
No other suburb in the state does it as well as we do. More of us walk, bike, or take transit to our jobs than almost anywhere else. We are a transit-oriented county, and the old railroad still runs in our blood. Investing our resources wisely, to move us beyond the car, is the task we inherit.
While we haven't grown much in the past 20 years, Marin has certainly changed. While we were once a haven for the counter-culture and the displaced, now only the wealthiest can live here. We are as friendly and as welcoming a community as ever, and we can do more to help those who work here every day join us in Marin.
