What’s in the Works

CLAM, its partner Eden Housing, and the local community are infusing new life into the former Coast Guard Housing site in Point Reyes Station. Our goal is to renew this neighborhood to provide real housing stability for residents and to create spaces that will serve people living there as well as the broader community.

Our goals:

  • Provide 51 affordable homes by rehabilitating the existing 36 residential townhomes and 15 one-bedroom apartments.
  • Provide spaces and resources that serve the needs of the neighborhood residents and the entire community.
  • Ensure this neighborhood is highly sustainable, in alignment with its natural environment, and a climate-resilient resource for the community.
  • Protect the beautiful natural environment within and surrounding this property.

How We Got Here

The West Marin community as well as many friends and supporters organized to ensure that this neighborhood was not sold by the US Coast Guard on an auction website, but was put on a track with the County of Marin to be used for affordable homes and community benefits. This project is the direct outcome of the community working through CLAM, a Community Land Trust, to take property off the speculative market and into the community's hands. Our journey has included strong community leadership, effective political partnership, the passage of federal legislation, all fueled by many hearts, minds, and letters from the local community!
