Hear solutions from the people who are closest to the problem!

Golden Gate Village was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright protege, Aaron Green, and built to house a primarily African-American population that helped build 93 Liberty ships in World War II. Because of its historic and architectural significance it was listed on the National Historic Register in 2017. This national treasure is now a vibrant, integrated neighborhood of approximately 700 people. Golden Gate Village is the largest family public housing community in Marin County and is also home to our largest black population. 

The Marin Housing Authority has a plan to tear down 16 existing units and  crowd an additional 156 units into two new high-rise buildings. In the process this will destroy the playground and open green space, alter the character of this tight-knit community and delay critical repairs to the existing units for many years.

The Golden Gate Village residents have a different plan. They want deep green renovation of their existing homes, no new buildings, a job training program and a pathway to home ownership through the creation of a community land trust. Learn more about the history - and potential future - of this very special place.
