Steps, Lanes and Paths Lawsuit Update


By Nell Mitchell

The Mill Valley City Council adopted a resolution to protect Mill Valley’s Steps, Lanes and Paths (SLPs) on March 20.

The City has also agreed to officially record the 192-path network at the County Recorder’s office and to remove all existing and future encroachments on the SLPs.

This comes after several months of conflict between the City and the Save Our Trails Organization.

“[The resolution] is momentous for the city and the citizens, everybody worked together to do something that needed to be done,” said the leading activist for the SLPs, Victoria Talkington. “I’m really excited for Mill Valley’s future because these paths are now safe.” ♦
