Here you’ll find information on the proposed new modern library, community center and public square.  Collectively known as The Commons, these vital community resources will be located on the corner of Rose Lane and Doherty Drive, Larkspur. The location is ideal, being close to five schools and a short stroll to the Lark Theater and downtown businesses. The vision is to build The Commons in three phases, as funds allow. This promises to be a dynamic hub for all the communities in the greater Ross Valley. Please explore our site to learn about our vision and how you can get involved.
