Legal Situation

THE LAST RESORT is currently involved in a legal situation with the County of Marin. We will be updating this page when appropriate, but in the meantime you can learn more about the situation by reading the various articles in the Media Coverage/Updates section.

To address the County’s greatest concerns about environmental health, we have installed a “normal” flush toilet hooked up to an existing septic tank. The system has been tested and given an “excellent” rating by Questa Engineering. The County was also concerned about clutter and debris, much of which has been removed from the property.  And we are in the process of addressing other safety concerns of the County by adding railings and fences.

We are actively seeking an amicable negotiation with the County of Marin, however we have had to retain legal counsel and our expenses are mounting. We need your help. Please visit this page to see the various ways you can show your support for THE LAST RESORT.
