In Mill Valley’s Middle Ridge neighborhood, on the slopes of Mt. Tamalpais, a pristine 13-acre property is for sale. Shown in red on the map, the land could be developed for one home site. Cascade Creek runs through the land, as well as a half-mile of the public Myrtle Avenue fire road and trail. On its western border, the land is adjacent to the City of Mill Valley and Marin Municipal Watershed open space.
We have an opportunity to permanently protect these beautiful hillsides, redwood forests, and creek corridor. Because the property is adjacent to protected land and bisected by a public trail and creek, it makes sense to expand the existing public open space to include this 13-acre property.
The Marin Open Space Trust would like to work with the community to protect this Mount Tamalpais watershed and viewshed for public open space. The trust is ready to work with neighbors and the City of Mill Valley to raise funds for the purchase.
