Imagine living alongside history in a scenic island neighborhood. This extraordinary opportunity exists on Mare Island. The Island’s landmark architecture has been preserved and many historic buildings refurbished. The community features parks, wildlife preserves, a golf course, Touro University and more. Four new housing neighborhoods have been created - Kirkland Isle, Alden Place, Gardener’s Glen and Farrgut Lane - with a variety of single family residences, town homes and apartments. Located on previously undeveloped land just beyond the island’s historic core, the neighborhoods are designed with the history of Mare Island and the surrounding Vallejo community in mind.

Major Mare Island Water and Sewer Improvements
Beginning August 2018 and concluding February 2019, the Mare Island Sewer and Water Main Replacement Project will break ground to improve reliable water and sewer services, and support economic development on Mare Island. This new project will utilize a boring technique to pull the new pipelines through two borings underneath the Mare Island Strait 95 feet north of the bridge and 75 feet below the river bed.
Through this innovative design, Mare Island's capacity will increase and include pipelines for VallejoNet Fiber optics and a recycled water main for future potential projects. Currently, the City's drinking water mains that serve Mare Island are in poor condition and nearing the end of their useful lives.
City Council completed all environmental reviews on April 11, 2017 and the project is estimated to cost under $16 million. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will contribute a grant of $1.2 million, while both the City and the District will contribute over $7 million each.
