Similar to the Berkeley Marina, Docktown in Redwood City is a public trust land. That's where many people call home. At a time they can't afford anywhere else to live, their future is now in jeopardy. The State Land Commission is debating what action they'll take.
Docktown is Redwood City's floating community where about a 100 people call home. They've been here since 1974. More importantly, residents say it's affordable.
Residents say this all started last year when an attorney, Ted Hannig, who lives across the marina in the newly built condos, filed a lawsuit saying that it was unlawful use of public land.
