The Marinwood CSD was created on February 17, 1960 in order to put in place a plan of self-government for the area of Marinwood. This area covered a stretch of unincorporated land located in Marin County, that extended north from Lucas Valley Road along Las Gallinas Avenue to the end of the road, just a bit past the Rhinestone & Millstone Terrace intersection with Las Gallinas Avenue. Gerald Hoytt remarked at the time, “Finding Marinwood was like discovering uranium!”. This quote made it into the sales brochure that promoted the community he had helped build in the 1950s. Marinwood, as pictured here, was called “the choicest location in the Bay Area”. Characterized by its blend of Joseph Eichler and Hoytt-designed homes and its vast open space, many still consider Marinwood to be “the choicest location in the Bay Area”. Continued growth from this modest beginning has secured additional bond funding, such that the Marinwood CSD has been able to build its own firehouse, community center, parks and pool. Additional open space was also acquired, adding to the beautiful landscapes and views from homes throughout the area.
