Learn how to help prevent "URBANIZATION" of Larkspur this Saturday.

If you like the Twin Cities' small town way of life, and are concerned about state beauracrats (and local opportunists!) who are trying to force massive new development at Larkspur Landing and throughout Marin, please take time to show up Saturday, May 17, at 2:30 pm at Redwood High School to learn what citizens can do to get involved and bring common sense to this ongoing process.  For more information, see www.larkspurfightsback.com

I have only one thing to ask from all Twin Cities residents. Stop using the phrase "Small Town Way of Life". We are fourth generations of CM ! When we heard the words Twin Cities years ago we though of Minnesota! We were able to cross a street safely when Tamalpais Drive was 25 mph. I know these days are gone & agree 100% with Pat Ravasio reminding all of us to attend meetings to stop more big growth in our beloved Larkspur & Corte Madera towns. The CM Handi Cup/Winship project was a huge wake up call of what happens when you don't pay attention.

Thanks Patti. We should all keep in mind two things 1) The state mandates the creation and regular updating of a general plan. Corte Madera's and Larkspur's General Plans call for "maintaining our small town character" as #1 objectives. 2) The US Constitution grants any rights not otherwise specified to the most local jurisdiction. This means our towns DO have the authority to maintain ourselves as we chose to. The state does not have constitutional authority to dictate that we build, build, build. Surely we can at least tap the brakes on some of this high density development, maybe even slam those brakes on. It has happened in Marin before. We can be "Rebels with a Cause" again! (If anyone wants to see this movie, I have he DVD. It's an excellent documentary of how Marin was saved from massive LA style development in the 1970s.)
