The City of Mill Valley is pleased to invite the community to a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on Saturday, May 21, at 1:00 pm, to celebrate the recently completed construction of a $800,000 project to replace or add new stairs at six different locations in Mill Valley.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place at the Old Mill Park Amphitheater at 1:00 pm. Attendees are encouraged to carpool or use alternative transportation, as parking is limited.
Mill Valley Mayor Ken Wachtel, City Councilmembers, City Manager Jim McCann, Interim Public Works Director Jill Barnes, and Parks Superintendent Rick Misuraca will speak and other City staff, Board, Commission and Committee members will be attending. Other participants include representatives from organizations that helped make this a successful project, such as representatives of the Marin County Board of Supervisors, Marin County office of Public Works, CalTrans, Maggiora & Ghilotti and Questa Engineers.
Dedication of Steps in Honor of Supervisor Charles McGlashan
After the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, members of the public are invited to participate in a half-mile hike from the Amphitheater to the base of the steps that connect Wainwright Place and Monte Vista Avenue. City officials will dedicate the steps in honor of Mill Valley resident Supervisor Charles McGlashan, who passed away earlier this year.
The optional hike will start at 1:30 pm from the Amphitheater. A shuttle will be provided from the Amphitheater to the corner of Cascade Drive and Wainwright Place for individuals who do not wish to hike. An RSVP is required for the shuttle. Please contact Linn Walsh, Assistant to the City Manager at 415-388-4033 x 103 or email firstname.lastname@example.org a week prior to the event to reserve a spot.
