There were 2 such projects, one sponsored by EAH and WMESH (West Marin Ecumenical Senior Housing) and one by EAH and WMAAH (West Marin Association for Affordable Housing) and both were subsidized by the Federal government and therefore were subject to Federal rules as to eligibility. Some local people were worried that this would attract out-of-area applicants, but in fact it didn't. If you think about it, you might be able to see why. Anyway, as you point out, this will not be an issue here because there is no Federal funding involved.

1. It is not true that this project is subsidized by the federal government. There are many different places where funds come from, including our community.
2. The earlier project you speak of is likely Pt. Reyes Affordable Homes, which was developed by EAH (Ecumenical Assoc. for Housing), not CLAM.
3. CLAM and our partner Eden, like every other affordable housing organization - must abide by fair housing law, and this can place restrictions in order to ensure that there is equal opportunity for housing.
4. It is CLAM's strong desire that this housing is used to support locals who need housing, while also providing a fair shot to others with the same need, given the fair housing law.

I do have a concern about the privacy of the residents. It is their neighborhood. I would like to see a Commons space that can be shared by residents on the property and the local community. There should be some thinking done on the impact of tourism.
