Marin City is a thriving, healthy, inclusive, and safe community where all youth, adults, and seniors have an opportunity to reach their fullest potential in life.
Marin City is a Special District that sits in an unincorporated community of Marin County. Marin City is located 1.5 miles northwest of downtown Sausalito and about 5 miles north of San Francisco from the Golden Gate Bridge. According to the 2010 census, the population of Marin City was 38.9% white, 38.1% African American, and 14% Hispanic of any race.
It is the goal of the Marin City Community Services District (MCCSD) Board and Staff to insure good governance on all issues affecting Marin City residents, including quality of life services, public safety, and land use and planning.
The governance of Marin City Community Services District consists of five publicly elected Board of Directors. The District is responsible for providing services in street lighting, recycling, refuse removal, while the core service of the District is recreation.
The undertaking of the District is to serve this historically marginalized African American community disproportionately impacted by poverty, racial divide and health inequiti...es.
In spite of the challenges, we recognize that Marin City is a unique place residing in one of the wealthiest counties in the nation with many lower income residents and a large number of African Americans. This community, with such a rich history, has much to celebrate and is worlds apart from neighboring cities.
