A Message from our Mayor: John Wright
San Anselmo has an idyllic small-town character that makes it a wonderful place to live and a delight to visit. There are great schools, the wide variety of sports and other activities for children and families, and the sense of community. Excellent restaurants and charming boutiques line its downtown streets; bicyclists and walkers fill its many coffee shops and cafes on weekends, enjoying the town's scenic Ross Valley location in the shadow of Mt. Tamalpais. Miles of walking and biking trails link the town to open space and watershed that has been largely untouched by urban and suburban growth. And all of this within a short drive, bus or ferry ride to one of the most beautiful and exciting cities in the world.
Please come visit our town, shop and eat at one of our many fine establishments, or take a walk or a bike ride here. We welcome you to our community and hope you have a pleasant visit.
Katie Rice, Marin County Supervisor District 2
It is my pleasure to extend a personal invitation to residents and visitors alike, to revel in and enjoy, and even, rediscover, the wonderful place many of us are happy to call home -- San Anselmo!
Having had the pleasure of working with neighbors, community leaders, and citizen groups on a host of issues large and small for the past 17 years as an active member of the community and more recently as the Ross Valley's County Supervisor, I can tell you that San Anselmo is, indeed, very special.
San Anselmo is remarkable not only because of what it has to offer in its surroundings and resources --great schools, beautiful, truly livable neighborhoods, a vibrant and unique business community, unfettered access to thousands of acres of parks and open space and the host of recreational opportunities they provide, and genuine small town character. But, as important, if not more important, it is special because of the people who live here.
Folks in San Anselmo are involved. From serving on town boards and commissions, neighborhood associations, volunteering in the schools, supporting or participating in recreation leagues, organizing and attending community events, banding together to advocate for specific issues and causes - people in San Anselmo get involved. And they get involved because they care, about each other, and about their community.
The positive, supportive sense of community that infuses every aspect of San Anselmo is what makes it truly one of the nicest places you could ever want to live or visit.
Come visit, shop, live and explore - and become a part of this wonderful community!
