The City of Mill Valley has many narrow streets and tight turns that have challenged fire equipment operators for many years. Multi point turns and narrow sections of the roadways slow fire response to many locations in the City. This project involves improving access for emergency response vehicles at three locations: end of Tamalpais Avenue, Marion Avenue and Monte Vista Avenue, and Marion Avenue and Hazel Avenue. The improvements involve landscape removal, site grading, retaining walls, and utility relocation.
Note: The tree removal process for the Marion Avenue/Monte Vista Avenue project involved two hearings before the Zoning Administrator, one hearing before the Planning Commission and one hearing before the City Council. For further information, please contact the Planning Department.
End of Tamalpais Ave; intersection of Marion Avenue and Monte Vista Avenue; intersection of Marion Avenue and Hazel Avenue.
