Having no guest speakers in April and May, the Transportation/Land Use/Housing Committee focused on keeping up to date on the issues it has been following: the potential MTC/ABAG merger; how progress on SMART will affect the Bettini Transit Center in downtown San Rafael; a dispute between Marin and Sonoma over whether federal funding will be used to continue the work on the Novato Narrows in Sonoma or send the SMART train to Larkspur in Marin. In June we be heard from Joanne Webster, President and CEO of the San Rafael Chamber of Commerce, on these and other issues the city is facing.
We also encourage you to visit the website of one of our partners, the Marin Environmental Housing Collaborative, at www.marinmehc.org. and go to its “enewsletters” section to read the excellent articles it has been publishing recently as part of its public information campaign on a variety of affordable-housing issues facing the Marin community.
