Share Your Ideas

We're updating the Neighborhoods Element!  This is the part of the General Plan that provides specific policy and program direction for individual neighborhoods in San Rafael.  We have designed an on-line tool for neighborhood organizations and residents to help us update the Plan text addressing their neighborhoods.  Please click the link for your neighborhood below and follow the prompts.  After a few general questions, we've provided the currently adopted text for each neighborhood listed.  The on-line tool provides a chance for you and your neighborhood organization to suggest changes:
