"New Suburbanism" is a new way to look at planning, growth and land use. It incorporates a "bottom up" locally driven process that enables communities to solve their most growth, affordable housing and planning challenges in an environmentally, economically and socially sustainable way.
New Suburbanism reaches back into history to suggest future methods we can employ to address our real housing, planning and social equity needs.

The Marin Open Space Legal Fund


The CVP Marin Open Space Fund was created to protect our environmental heritage and to ensure the safe use of our Open Space by all Marin residents.


Our accomplishments include assisting in the ban of toxic herbicides and pesticides in our watershed, and working to ensure the safe use of single track hiking trails in our special nature preserves.

The Marin Post



CVP believes that citizen journalism is an area that deserves ongoing support. Toward that end we are currently developing a new citizen journalism web magazine called The Marin Post


Even in our digital age, good journalism remains one of the most powerful forces for social and political change.  Citizen journalism and communications have been a major catalyst for many of the positive public policy changes we've witnessed to date. 

The Complete Communities

Pilot Project
