Dick Spotswood: Certain Marin disputes are overdue for some mediation

excerpt from Marin IJ, Jan 16, 2022

• Mill Valley, like all Marin communities, struggles to build new housing to meet state mandates. The hot issue is proposed multiunit apartments on Hamilton Drive across from Hauke Park.

The city’s consultant recommends 40 units be built. The neighbors are outraged but, significantly, most of them will accept “some new housing.” When the question isn’t just yes or  no but how many units, their size and affordability, mediation is the obvious route to dispute resolution.

Friends of Hauke Park

See what our elected officials are 

saying about the Affordable Housing mandate. 


We Agree - a minimum of 40 units is EXCESSIVE for the site adjacent to Hauke Park.
