What that means: As of this moment, PG&E’s Future Power Outages Map indicates that the commercial district in Tam Junction, Alto and Strawberry will be largely spared, as will most of Miller Avenue until you get beyond the Mill Valley Lumber Yard as you come into Downtown, which will be almost entirely impacted by the PSPS.
PG&E has indicated that they would deploy backup diesel power generators at the Alto Substation on Roque Moraes to provide backup power to those impacted, BUT they cannot do so for those businesses and homes located within the High-Fire-Threat District, as determined by the California Public Utilities Commission.
Most of Downtown is within that High Fire Threat Map.

As part of the Red Flag warning, parking restrictions on Miller Ave. will also be in effect during this time period in the Residential and Employee Permit areas. For emergencies, call 9-1-1 for immediate assistance. For non-emergencies call 415.389.4100.
RESIDENTS: As stated above, PG&E’s Future Power Outages Map indicates that the commercial districts in Tam Junction, Alto and Strawberry will be largely spared, as will most of Miller Avenue. The Mill Valley Lumber Yard was initially within the affected area but that impact was reversed by PG&E. Downtown will be almost entirely impacted by the PSPS.
Within affected area but open:
Mountain Home Inn
Piazza D’Angelo: Open for lunch
Mill Valley Market: Open as normal – will have charging station starting Monday morning.
