The Whistlestop Mission Plaza project has been proposed at an ideal time. - July 19, 2015

The scarcity of affordable senior housing is not something to be ignored.

This countywide issue continues to be swept under the carpet, and now we have a truly viable project to finally help alleviate this issue. This project truly deserves our full community support.

As the cost of living continues to increase in Marin, the number of seniors who can afford to stay here continues to decrease, as the number of senior housing alternatives also continues to decrease. Our seniors deserve better care, support, assistance and affordable housing options.

It is imperative that the community stands behind projects like this, to improve the overall quality of life now, not later, as the number of future alternative sites is bound to decrease. There are significant changers occurring in Marin and let’s make sure this positive change is not an opportunity we let slip through our fingers.

I strongly encourage everyone’s support of Whistlestop’s effort to continue their amazing care for our seniors, and applaud them for creating such a worthwhile solution to an ongoing public issue.

– Matt McPhee, Greenbrae
