Notice of Community Workshop
Marin County Housing Element
The Marin County Community Development Agency is initiating the next Housing Element to plan for future housing needs for the planning period of 2014-2023. Staff is offering a variety of opportunities for the community to contribute ideas and be engaged throughout the process. The Housing Element website has been updated to improve access to important information about housing. Community members are also invited to participate in the new 2014 Marin County Housing Survey, and to sign up for email updates to stay informed on the latest Housing Element news.
A community workshop has been scheduled in five different locations to solicit input on how to best satisfy our housing needs for the next Housing Element cycle (the workshops will occur prior to the completion of the Draft Housing Element and before the Planning Commission begins its review). Following the workshops, the community will also have the opportunity to attend the hearings for the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors review of the Draft Housing Element. The schedule.
RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH FUN AND COMMUNITY SPIRIT!
A message from Greg Kamman, President and the LVHA Social Committee
It is exciting to announce the formation of the New LVHA Social Committee. Over the past several months, in concert with the LVHA Board of Directors, a wonderful team of community volunteers has stepped up offering their talents, and willingness to serve our beautiful community.
On the heels of the 1st Annual LVHA Party in September last year, the connection and joy fostered enthusiasm for many LVHA members to participate in furthering the community events. With a reorganization of the scope and new funding, together with the new team of volunteers, you can expect to see a broader outreach and super fun events.
The 2014 calendar of events kicks off on February 9th with a “Welcoming Meet and Greet” for new homeowners. Invitations have been sent out, reaching back over the past two years to include any new members of the community.
The Social Committee team and Board members will host the event for these new homeowners with light bites, a toast and community camaraderie. Moving forward, this event will happen on a more regular basis to welcome new homeowners.
Whether you have little kids or are a big kid, there will be something for everyone. The Easter egg hunt, Halloween parade, a kick-off to summer with a BBQ/pool party, and the 2nd Annual Celebration for the adults will assist in the unity and connection of our neighbors, and add yet another thing that makes our community so special.
We look forward to bringing all together in the New Year.

Street Construction Projects in Lucas Valley
Several street construction projects are occurring in our community over the next two or three months.
The crosswalks on Idylberry are being modified to be ADA compliant, TV and Internet cable is being installed on all streets, and Idylberry Road is being repaved. New cable connection boxes and pedestals will be installed along the sidewalks. Some of these projects may result in temporary delays or inconvenience, but this should be for only a short time.
The existing natural gas, electric, communication, water, and sewer lines have been marked to help the contractors avoid damaging the existing utilities. However, some outages could occur because of the need to relocate some utilities and due to accidental damage. If you experience problems, please contact the appropriate service provider.
