Letter to the Community

Dear Marin Horizon and Neighborhood Families,
After wrapping up my first school year at Marin Horizon, I am excited about breaking ground on our building project this summer, and want to let you know what to expect over the next several months.
We will be mobilizing for construction the first week of July, which includes erecting fencing, implementing safety measures, bringing in a job trailer, and posting signage. We expect to start construction after the July 4th holiday.
Throughout July the project will focus on demolition of the existing building, excavation, and relocation of utilities. In August, we will begin foundation work, including digging, installing rebar, and pouring cement. During this time, trucks will be bringing in materials to the site and taking away off-haul. We have requested from the building department of Marin County for trucks to be directed onto Evergreen Avenue, and we anticipate approval of this request. No construction trucks will be using Montford Avenue. Along with truck delivery routes, the building department of Marin County will also be mandating our hours of construction.
I will continue to provide updates on the project as we move forward. Please contact me, bperrine@marinhorizon.org if you have any questions about the content of this letter. If you have more specific questions about the project, please contact our project manager, Ted Lieser, at ted@ecbsf.com. You can also visit our website marinhorizon.org for previous updates, FAQs, and renderings of the campus plan.
Warm Regards,
Bill Perrine

Homestead Valley Vignettes by Chuck Oldenburg
Homestead Terrace

A block up Montford from Miller is Homestead Terrace, Federal Public Housing, Elderly/Disabled. Residents are generally at least 62 years old with a very low annual income. The complex consists of 5 buildings with 27 studio apartments, each 374 sq. feet, plus a community building. Construction was completed in February 1969. It received the 1970 HUD Honor Award for Design Excellence and the 1974 Bay Area AIA Design Excellence Honor Award for Architect/Landscape. Architecture was by Campbell & Wong of San Francisco. Landscape Architecture was by Royston, Hanamoto, Beck & Abey of Mill Valley. Both Bob Royston and Eldon Beck lived in Homestead. Project plans were announced in June 1966. Neighborhood reaction was immediate: density was too high and increased traffic would be a hazard to the elderly. In September 1966, the Homestead Valley Improvement Club board voted unanimously to support the project. A week later, the Marin County Board of Supervisors approved the 28-unit project. By 1970, neighbors who had been opposed said it was "very nicely done" and an "asset to the community."
