Local government

Tamalpais Valley is an unincorporated community of approximately 2,800 households, plus small businesses located in southern Marin County between the cities of Mill Valley and Sausalito. Although we are unincorporated, Tam Valley has a local government -- the Tamalpais Community Services District (TCSD) with elected officials who represent us on Tam Valley issues.
