County Service Area #13 (CSA 13) is a government agency that provides various services to our community. The Board of Supervisors of Marin County is its Board of Directors. In the case of CSA #13, it has an advisory board which is made up of the Board of Directors of the Lucas Valley Homeowners Association and its two representatives on the Marinwood Fire Commission.
CSA # 13 was formed in the 1960s to contract with the Marinwood Community Services District to provide fire protection to our community. In the 1970s, Open Space was added and we passed a bond issue to buy the hills behind our community.
Later, the function of Para-medic Service was added and LVHA contracted with the City of San Rafael for this service. Each time a service was added, an election was held to approve a tax rate increase for these services.
