EXEMPTION TO WILDFIRE TAX

I believe many of us received a mail flyer on this or saw it on Nextdoor, but I thought it would be worth adding to the newsletter -- if it isn't too late -- a note about the exemption to the parcel tax for the Marin Wildlife Prevention Authority (MWPA) for homeowners 65 or older AND who have incomes below $111,550 for two people and $97,600 for one person households.

Basically it provides an exemption for these homeowners from the new Measure C MWPA tax that was passed last March. More information can be found at:

800-676-7516

Note (1) Exemption requests must be filed by 6/30/2020 to be effective for the 2020-21 tax year.

Note (2) Only one person in a two person household need be 65 or older


San Rafael Sidewalk Repair Program - JUNE 2020 UPDATE.

Here is an important update from the Peacock Gap HOA Board of Directors.

The City and the contractor (Van Midde Concrete) re-started approved projects in East San Rafael this week after three months of novel coronavirus-related downtime.

They started with a couple of projects on Peacock Drive. In the weeks ahead they will be finishing work on San Marino Drive and Riviera Drive, will proceed to Biscayne Drive, and then beyond. They will work their way from the Peacock Gap and Glenwood areas westward toward downtown in the months ahead.

The City will *consider* requests to be added to their project list. However, priority will be given to projects already approved. It is possible that additional add-ons to their list will have to wait for the next application cycle to apply.

The online application site is not accessible now, so if you are interested in applying or want to refer a neighbor, please contact Thomas Wong directly:

Thanks for improving the appearance, the appeal, the safety, and the walkability of our neighborhoods. It is much appreciated.
