Our mission and principles

We believe that Marin is a truly special place, with lessons for the rest of the region and the country about how to create and maintain livable places in a suburban setting. This is our guiding light as we examine and reexamine how Marin's human habitat might evolve into something even greater than it is.


To create and maintain the vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable communities that, in combination with our magnificent open space, make Marin such a great place.



  • Support walkable, bikeable, transit-friendly communities through public policies and actions that create a better Marin.
  • Support thoughtful planning and responsible development.
  • Win on the issues by winning hearts and minds.
