Approved Board Report
Resolution No. 2017 - 15

The community of Santa Venetia is a neighborhood of over 1600 homes in unincorporated Marin, bounded by Gallinas Creek to the north, San Pablo Bay to the east, and the city of San Rafael to the south and west. Santa Venetia is located in close proximity to the Marin Civic Center and Highway 101, the County's primary north-south corridor. The Santa Venetia Community Plan addresses locally-identified issues, consistent with the policies and programs of the Countywide Plan.

Writing the Santa Venetia Community Plan was a team effort involving both County staff and an advisory committee of representatives from the community.
