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. Short-term management and longer-term planning for the site will take place in collaboration with the San Geronimo community. Watch this page for updates. Contact Parks Director Max Korten or Project Manager Tara McIntire with questions, concerns, or to schedule a meeting.

Board of Supervisors Meetings Summary

On Tuesday, March 27, 2018 the Board of Supervisors approved an agreement with Touchstone Golf for interim management of the San Geronimo Golf Course for a 2-year period.

At its December 12, 2017 meeting, the Marin County Board of Supervisors voted to adopt a resolution confirming the County's agreement with TPL for the San Geronimo Golf Course purchase. 

At its November 14, 2017 meeting the Marin County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a purchase agreement for the 157-acre San Geronimo Golf Course. 

The October 31, 2017 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.

At its October 10, 2017 meeting, 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.
