Members sought for Measure W housing group


The county is looking for seven community members to sit on a working group that will provide direction to the county on how best to use the money generated by the increased transient occupancy tax in West Marin. The increase, implemented in January after the vote last fall, will generate an estimated $1.3 million for coastal Marin; this working group will focus on the half destined for affordable housing, as the emergency-services portion has already been allocated by the various fire districts. The group will meet locally beginning this summer and provide feedback to the county’s Community Development Agency, which in turn will make recommendations to the Board of Supervisors. Applications will be accepted through 5 p.m. on May 28, and can be found online on the county’s website on the Community Development Agency’s page, under the housing tab, under Measure W.
