San Geronimo Property Acquisition

The County of Marin is moving forward in acquiring a 157-acre property in West Marin, with the help of a national nonprofit conservation organization, The Trust for Public Land (TPL). Marin County Parks' goal is to restore its extensive natural habitat into a greenbelt linking the San Geronimo Valley’s rural villages.

Board Meeting: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
At its November 14 meeting, the Marin County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a purchase agreement for the 157-acre San Geronimo Golf Course. The property’s price, set by the purchase agreement and based on professional appraisals, is $8.85 million. TPL will assume ownership of the golf course property in December, at which time Parks will take over day-to-day land management, maintenance, and operations responsibilities. As established in the purchase and sale agreement, TPL will sell the property to the County by mid-December 2018. Community planning and visioning workshops about the property could begin as soon as early 2018. Proposed future uses would then need to be approved by the Marin County Board of Supervisors.

Board Meeting: Tuesday, October 31, 2017
This meeting was rescheduled to create more time for community feedback and ensure the Board had an opportunity to address residents' questions. At this meeting the purchase of the golf course remained as an information item only. 

Board Meeting: Tuesday, October 10, 2017
The Board of Supervisors voted to exempt the purchase of the golf course from the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and voted to issue public notice of intent to purchase golf course from TPL. This notice of intent formalized the County’s interest in acquiring the land from TPL. View video of the meeting.
