Seminary proposal SDRB meeting – Dec 7th, 7:30pm Rec Center

If you only attend ONE community meeting this year, THIS should be it.

Monday, December 7th, 7:30pm, at the Strawberry Rec Center Gym

The Strawberry Design Review Board (responsible for reviewing development proposals) will be reviewing the initial proposal from the North Coast Land Holdings group to build 300 units and a (up to) 1000 student Branson Campus at the current Seminary property.

This proposal has the potential to dramatically change the nature of the community we live in.  Whether you oppose it or favor it, this is the meeting to make your thoughts known.

The county Planning Department, Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors rely on the Strawberry Design Review Board to make recommendations about the Strawberry community, and the SDRB relies on YOU, members of the community, to make your voices heard.

The actual proposal (which is hundreds of pages) can be found on the County website by clicking here.

A former Design Review member wrote this Marin Voice article for the Independent Journal about the need for the community to get involved, and here a former Branson board member laments Branson’s lack of engagement with the community in another Marin Voice article.

Seminary Neighborhood Association, a local community group, has created a FAQ about the proposal which you can see by clicking here SNA FAQ November 15 2015.

In addition, you can find letters written to the SDRB by the Seminary Neighborhood Association’s attorney and a local resident about the proposal, discussing some concerns, here Ltr – Marin CDA – completeness – 11.20.15 and here McDevitt SDRB Letter 11-30-15.

If you have an opinion, come, bring a neighbor who may not be aware of this meeting, and express it.  If you don’t have an opinion yet, come and learn about proposals that may have a huge effect on the place you live.

Either way, it’s important that our residents come out and participate in the most important decisions about our neighborhood for the next hundred years.
