See List of Improvements attached below. 



Nicasio, known as the "town that time forgot" is a beautiful pastoral town just beyond Lucas Valley in San Rafael. With a small town feel and tight-knit community, Nicasio is the perfect town to get peace and quiet yet be in close proximity to the City. 

Major landmarks include the Nicasio Reservoir, St Mary's church and Rancho Nicasio, the local pub and restaurant with live music weekly.

West Marin

“The wide-open, picture-perfect spaces of West Marin include the coastal communities of Stinson Beach and Bolinas; the dairy farms of Olema, Point Reyes Station, Tomales, and Nicasio; and the forest glens of Lagunitas, San Geronimo, and Woodacre. 

Uniting all West Marin communities is a love for the land. That’s not going to change soon, thanks to the efforts of Marin Agricultural Land Trust, an organization dedicated to preserving farmland through voluntary conservation easements.

Outdoor recreation ranges from surfing at Bolinas and Stinson Beach to mountain biking on Mount Tamalpais and the annual Dipsea foot race to Stinson Beach. West Marin is an area of unrivaled natural beauty, one that can lay claim to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Muir Beach State Bark, Stinson Beach State Park, Muir Woods National Monument, and Point Reyes National Seashore.

Of course it’s not all about the outdoors in West Marin. Devotees of inner peace turn to the Green Gulch FarmZen Center in Muir Beach and Spirit Rock Meditation Center in Woodacre. And for those who need to feed the belly as well as the soul, Point Reyes Station has become a destination for the locavore movement. The town is home to Marin Sun Farms, purveyor of ethically raised and butchered meat, and Cowgirl Creamery, which makes its award-winning cheeses using organic milk from nearby Straus Family Creamery.”
