City Manager Update

13 Reasons Why Premiere and Library Talk

The Netflix/Paramount series 13 Reasons Why filmed in Larkspur over the summer and will debut on Netflix on March 31st. The Larkspur Library will host a talk by Jay Asher, the author of the book that inspired the series, on April 5th at 2:30 pm at the Hall Middle School gymnasium. The book’s themes include teen issues and bullying in schools, and Library staff have been coordinating with the local Middle and High Schools to publicize the event. The Netflix/Paramount production team helped arrange the talk in appreciation of the Larkspur community’s accommodation of filming activity in the city. 

Piper Park Playground Ribbon Cutting

On April 1st, the redesigned Piper Park Playground will officially open. New structures and wood chips are in place and waiting for kids of all ages. A ribbon cutting will take place at 10:00 am. Before and After photos of the park can be found here

Maintenance Work

With the break in the rains, Public Works crews have been able to turn some of their attention to cleaning up the downtown medians on Magnolia Ave. Additionally, crews are still performing clean up and repairs of some of the storm damaged infrastructure within the city. This includes downed trees, cleanup of some slides, and filling the potholes throughout the city. Over the next few weeks, crews will continue the cleanup and pothole efforts and begin sports field maintenance, mowing parks, and weed eating the bike/pedestrian paths in Larkspur.

Larkspur Residents Want Pothole Relief

A recently commissioned independent survey shows residents in the City of Larkspur give the City good job performance ratings, and want the City to accelerate street, road, and pothole repair as its top priority.

The survey, conducted February 17th - March 1st 2017 by the respected firm of FM3 Research, was commissioned to assess current resident perspectives on community priorities and service needs. Respondents continue to give the City consistently positive overall job ratings, with a strong majority of more than 2 to 1 giving the Larkspur excellent or good performance rankings. As much as 85% of respondents identified “repairing streets, roads and potholes,” as being the top priority, followed by maintaining police/fire protection and 911/emergency response services and repairing storm drains to prevent contaminated spills into the Bay.
