Click here to review this document.

Revised Notice of Intention/Negative Declaration for Victory Village, extending the public comment period on the Initial Study and Negative Declaration to January 4, 2017

The Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) is the environmental assessment for the project prepared pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The original deadline to comment on the MND was 12/20/16. Based on comments received at the Planning Commission, the deadline to comment on the MND has been extended to 1/4/2017. This comment period only applies to comments on the Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND). There is no deadline for general comments regarding the Victory Village project. The public can continue to comment at the meetings (e.g., Planning Commission) to consider the project, or submit comments via email to Town staff.

Flood Siren Reminder

If you hear the flood horn (two long sustained blast), this means that the creek is likely to exceed its banks in Ross Valley, but not necessarily in Fairfax. By policy, the Towns all agreed that if one community sounds its horn, all the communities (Fairfax, Ross, San Anselmo) will sound their horns. If you hear the flood horn and you live in an area that floods, you should immediately get to a second story or hitospgher ground. Please do not come downtown to see the creek levels. Flood waters are fast moving and very dangerous. Unless you have an emergency, please don’t call 911 for information as diatch lines can be quickly overwhelmed. Stay tuned for further updates.
