“An episodic journey” was how one member of the community described Miller Avenue in Mill Valley to the design team. “Keep the quirks” was what another implored, referencing the oddities of old redwoods interrupting curbs and widened sections of roadway where rail stations once stood. And the common refrain of “the character is already here” was heard time and time again from residents who cherish the views to Mount Tamalpais, the meandering creeks, connecting public stairs, and the verdant forested hills. WRT embraced these ideal as we solved issues of safety, parking, sea level rise, and water quality during master planning followed by a detailed Complete Street design for Miller Avenue.
