No earlier than 2:15 p.m., the Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution authorizing the purchase of the San Geronimo Golf from The Trust for Public Land (TPL), and authorize execution of a purchase and sale agreement. On September 22, TPL, a national nonprofit, signed a non-binding agreement to purchase the golf course from the Lee Family Trust with the intent of selling and transferring the property to the County at a future date for park purposes. Marin County Parks is interested in restoring the property’s stream flow to natural conditions and creating a greenbelt linking the valley’s rural villages. The County estimates that $3.91 million of the purchase price would come from County funds with the remainder from outside sources. If sold to a private buyer, the property – which includes critical habitat for endangered salmon – could be developed into a resort or used for other commercial recreational purposes.
The Board adopted the resolution authorizing the golf course purchase.
