FORUMS: I don't live in West Marin but I want to. Can I join the forums?


As there are so many requests for housing coming in from people who are not already living or working in West Marin, we regret we have to reserve the Forums for people who do live & work here.  As you probably realize, there is only limited housing available in West Marin - both for sale and for rent.  Given this situation, together with the plight of existing West Marin rental tenants who are forced to move because of changes made by homeowners, we do not feel we can accommodate requests from people outside the area who desire to live here.  We suggest that you publish your request in the local newspaper the Point Reyes Light or contact local realtors for rental or sales listings. To learn more about the challenges and solutions for people needing housing in West Marin, please check out our local community land trust, CLAM (Community Land Trust Association of Marin -
