Yes! I agree, I have lived in Mill Valley almost 45 years and have always wished Lovell Ave. wasRead Morea two way street. We have three streets....Cascade, Throckmorton, and Lovell, all coming out of that canyon on Throckmorton. It is very inefficient. You have my vote!
jacqueline jones July 17, 2014 at 07:39 PM
Absolutely! Sometimes in the afternoon, around 3:30, it takes me about 15 minutes to get out of my Read Moredriveway. It has been even worse with the PGE work. Why it isn't two-way already is beyond me.

Well done! The pressing issue is does this state need more people? We are currently at 38 million Read Moreor so. Or does this planet need an ever increasing population heading toward 8 billion and beyond?

I agree with you 8 billion percent.

Hi Jennifer, Here is the latest news on the downtown pipeline replacement project: What happenedRead Morel ast week: Gas main installation was completed on Throckmorton Ave between Bernard St and Madrona St. What is happening this week: PG&E crews will be trenching for gas main installation on Madrona St, Throckmorton Ave between Bernard St and Madrona St, and on Throckmorton Ave between E. Blithedale Ave and Corte Madera Ave. Mill Valley Market service is to be completed early this week. What to expect in the next few weeks: PG&E anticipates completing gas main installation and service connections on Throckmorton Ave between E Blithedale Ave and Corte Madera Ave as well as service connections on Madrona St. Pavement restoration on Throckmorton Ave between Corte Madera Ave and Bernard St, Corte Madera between Lovell Ave and Throckmorton Ave, and Bernard St are planned for the week of 6/16. Pavement restoration will take place in upcoming weeks. It has been delayed at this time due to concerns over current traffic impacts caused by the ongoing pipe replacement project.

Thank you. This is just the update I was searching for. Great news. Looking for our little town to Read Morereturn to it's cheery little self.

Agree, this issue needs addressing. The fire danger alone is very significant. High travelled spots Read Moreneed to be "coiffed". I asked, years ago, about our corner, which meets Miller. I couldn't see if students were crossing, or not! I was told, we don't have the $$. I was willing to do on my own, but felt there were liability issues if I, "crossed the line", with our weed wacker. Mill Valley is "weed central" compared to the well maintained entries and communities of Tiburon, Corte Madera, Larkspur and others. You really can make progress by weed wacking before they re seed. We need mandatory weed supervision and control. Time is now for our citizens to form neighborhood groups to work with their local fire departments to get neighbors to weed. It was mandatory, 25+ years ago. If a citizen didn't comply with the inspection and VERY short time to complete the work, it was done for you and charged on your tax bill, at a much higher rate than if you had done this on your own. Where's the action on this issue??
Annie May 29, 2014 at 12:29 AM
Not to belabor this subject, however, since this issue has been brought to the forefront, I feel it Read Morereally needs to be addressed. Today, while driving to the Blithedale entry to 101, I couldn't help but look around and notice the major weed problem. Such a fire danger. Our lovely city has a seriously shabby entry!!

cancel the order right away and get your money back from your credit card company, mine showed up 4 Read Moremonths late without the promised extras and never worked right - blows the 50 GFI breaker so the heater wont stay on. Been almost 1 year now never used it and they are ignoring my requests now that Citibank has allowed the charges to be put back on my card ( I didn't return the merchandise) . the biggest bunch of liars and thieves I have ever seen

Why not have a "feel good and do good" positive affect on the ocean - everyday - byRead Moreputtin g your litter securely into a garbage can instead of tossing it in the gutter, leaving it along the sidewalk or letting it languish on your school grounds! Look around Mill Valley, and trash is what you will begin to notice. Since our street runoff (rain, duh) goes directly into the bay via our creeks and estuaries, your plastic caps, bottles, snack wrappers and other stuff (cigarette butts?) pass through these cool places and then are carried off - out through the Bay and into the Pacific Ocean - where a massive plastic island exists that is larger than the state of Texas. In fact, oceanographers who are studying the problem are not sure exactly how large -or deep - it even is. The plastic that ends up there, sometimes ground down as fine as grains of sand, is routinely ingested by sea creatures, marine mammals, and birds which ultimately die, often from starvation. No kidding. Google it.
