Community Meeting - Sycamore Park Restoom

Join us for a Community Meeting – Sycamore Park Restroom

Thursday, March 5 at 6:00 pm at the Mill Valley Community Center

Join us for a Community Meeting to learn about the proposed Sycamore Park Restroom and to share your thoughts and input.

Background:

For over 14 years, the Mill Valley community has discussed the possibility of installing a public restroom at Sycamore Park – a much-loved neighborhood park nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood between Miller Avenue and Camino Alto. The City Council approved the location and preliminary design of the restroom in 2009, and over the course of the next nine years the City held 11 public meetings to further explore design options, identify funding, and address location and floodway issues.

In 2018 the project made it to the farthest point it had ever come– with a design, plans, and budget approved and ready to be put out to bid. The restroom would be a compact, single unit, ADA compliant structure with a natural wooden exterior and an ADA compliant drinking fountain. Estimated cost was $250,000, to be funded by the City's Capitol Improvement Project budget.

However, soon after Council approval, several community members contacted the City with questions and concerns about the proposed restroom. City officials recognized the concerns and directed a pause on the project.

The meeting on March 5 will allow City staff to update the community on the proposed project and to hear your thoughts. If you cannot join us at the meeting, please submit your questions or comments to Sean McGrew, Interim Director of Arts and Recreation at smcgrew@cityofmillvalley.org or 415-383-1370.
