This was posted on Joe Soule's (realtor) Facebook page - for thinking about names: To the Coast Miwok the stream was known as Tokelalume, then by the Spanish as Arroyo de San Geronimo, then Daniels creek. Now the "San Geronimo" survives only as the San Geronimo Creek tributary. The modern name, Lagunitas Creek, is derived from the several "lagunitas" (Spanish for "little lakes") which have now been turned into reservoirs by dams in the upper watershed. It was once known as Paper Mill Creek because Samuel P. Taylor built a paper mill on the creek in Taylorville. This mill, the Pioneer Paper Mill, was built in 1856, the first in California.

Miwok Way sounds good. Want to point out that there is a Miwok Way in Inverness. Wondering if that may be confusing for deliveries. I know that there is often direction & delivery confusion with two Laurel Streets - one in Inverness Park and one in Inverness (near the school).

That should read: CLAM's Creekside Homes. Street: Willow Walk Way. Open Space/public walking areas to be named by Miwok representatives. If not able to use CLAM's name (who's doing all the major work to make this happen?!!) then Creekside Homes.

At the 3rd community gathering I was interested in the idea for fruit orchards. One of the sites was above the residences, towards the school. I was thinking that a lower region close to the creek would offer a higher water table for fruit orchards, esp. with drought conditions and when they're saplings. I live in similar riparian area, and with drought this year, established apples & pears are plentiful - assume because roots are actually tapping into damp ground. Also, suggest planting alders near the creek when some of the dead trees are removed.
