Take a moment to read this succinct summary of past Downtown planning. There is much development pressure on the City, and the Mayor's Downtown Design Committee is hammering out guidelines to steer how the City will look, with hopefully "Timeless" design.

Read Article from Marin IJ
Founded in 1992, the Federation has served as an umbrella and advocacy group for all neighborhoods in San Rafael, south of Puerto Suello Hill.
What we do: The group sees a real need to address multi-neighborhood issues that cross over neighborhood boundaries and impact a multiple number of neighborhoods. Often individual neighbors or neighborhood associations have addressed these issues in ineffective and redundant ways and have been unable to gain the attention of the City of San Rafael. The Federation has gotten involved in Graffiti abatement, downtown development, street repaving, illegal units, wildfire safety, St Vincent’s dining room and many more issues since its inception. The group is made up of both neighborhood associations and individuals who often care about broad issues that can impact all of San Rafael. The group has established a positive partnership with the City and created a vehicle for solving real problems with positive outcomes.

Federation Gives $1,500 Grant to Marin ReLeaf
The original funding offer of $1500 from Steve Patterson of the Federation was incentive to the City Council for the formation of the Tree Advisory Committee. The Parks Department of San Rafael Public Works and Sandra worked out the details after the Committee’s work was completed. Marin ReLeaf must find funding for each year’s plantings since they do not receive money from the City.
