Marinwood Shopping Center Redevelopment

I am posting this article on behalf of John Hammond, who has been working as a leader in our community’s efforts to revitalize the Marinwood Plaza for many years.

This posting contains my thoughts on the BRIDGE Housing’s plans to redevelop the Marinwood Shopping Center. This does not address the wisdom or lack of wisdom of the other affordable housing proposals for the Marinwood/Lucas Valley area. The discussion of those other projects is a complex subject that will be debated for many years before being resolved. The shopping center project has been in development for over eight years and is entering the approvals process. Unlike the other proposals the shopping center may be realized in the near future. Discussion of this project needs to stand on its own and not be swept into the larger debate involving other proposals.

*Important* Marinwood Village Center – Moving forward

We have new momentum in our quest to create a shopping village on the old Marinwood Plaza property.

With a goal of February 2009, the Marinwood Village Collaborative (Members listed below) will build on the results of the successful community planning process to finalize a detailed development plan and engineering study for the site along with pedestrian, bicycle and transit studies. One caveat – The contamination from previous dry cleaners may be more extensive then previously thought.
