City of Mill Valley Pauses Progress on Sycamore Restroom

At their meeting on Monday, April 16, 2018 the Mill Valley City Council adopted a Resolution approving the plans and specifications for a $250,000 single stall Sycamore Park Restroom, authorizing the City Manager to award and execute a construction contract.
The City has posted the following update to Nextdoor:

"Recently, a number of community members have contacted the City with questions and concerns about the proposed restroom. City officials recognize and appreciate the comments and have directed Public Works staff to pause progress on the project."

The City has stated it will provide an update to community members on the next steps for further discussion about the project and urges concerned citizens to sign up for the official City newsletter.

Please feel free to voice your concerns via this petition or directly to Public Works.

  1. A few neighbors who have stated repeatedly That they do not want a public restroom in this area, were again, dismissed. They have expressed to me that they distrust the City's pause on the project. I understand this distrust. Wondering if Mill Valley has already gone too far past the sense of entitlement - i.e., "nothing is too good for my child" mentality so as to support a single public toilet that costs A QUARTER OF A MILLION DOLLARS? Really?
