Grady Ranch is a proposed residential community of 224 workforce and senior housing units that will be located on a beautiful property on Lucas Valley Road in unincorporated Marin County. With the support and generosity of the landowner, Skywalker Properties, the property and financing are already in place to bring this project to life, which makes Grady Ranch a once in a lifetime opportunity to create quality, environmentally conscious housing for our local teachers, nurses, police officers, and other essential members of our community who are being priced out of Marin.
Further, this project will ensure that 93% of Grady Ranch will be preserved as open space forever. Of the approximately 1,040 acres at the original Grady Ranch site, 800 acres were donated to the Marin County Open Space District in 2002. Of the remaining 240 acres, Skywalker Properties and PEP Housing are proposing 70% of this land as new open space.
Under PEP Housing’s management, Grady Ranch will be a vibrant mix of townhomes and multi-unit housing units as well as other features, such as a community center, micro-farm, orchards, barn, and more. The plan includes 120 units that will be reserved for people whose income falls at approximately 80% of the area’s median income (AMI), or Marin households that earn between $65,700-$101,400 a year. The senior housing portion will include 104 units for seniors 62 and older, with a variety of income levels.

Questions and Answers
Why is this project needed?
Grady Ranch will fill a specific need in Marin. It will create housing for the people who need it most, including our local teachers, nurses, police officers, and other essential community members who cannot afford to live in the community they serve. Too often, local workers such as these cannot afford market-rate housing yet they make too much to qualify for government assistance. For instance, of the housing vouchers distributed by the Marin Housing Authority, 75% must go to extremely low-income households. As a result, people who earn 60-80% of AMI simply don’t have a high probability of ever receiving a voucher.
Who will get to live in these homes?
Grady Ranch will include homes for members of the workforce and senior communities. In the workforce housing component of the plan, 120 units will be open to people whose income falls at approximately 80% of the area’s median income (AMI), or Marin households that earn between $65,700-101,400 a year. In the senior housing portion, 104 units will be open toward a variety of income levels.
What is the timeline for the project?
Grady Ranch will go through an extensive County approvals process that will include a complete environmental review, which takes many months. Public hearings are anticipated to take place in mid-2016.
