Measure A required a ⅔ vote to pass and passed with over 74%. Its passage ensures a critical piece is in place for the continuing efforts to maintain and expand our green belts here in Marin. The monies raised by this over the next nine years will go to open-space, parks and farmland. According to KTTVU the measure will raise an estimated $10 million a year and breaks down as:
Sixty-five percent of the revenue will be used to protect or restore natural resources and
maintain county parks and open space preserves
20 percent will go toward protecting farmland and ranches from development and subdivision
15 percent will go to municipalities and special districts to manage their parks, open spaces and recreation programs and reduce wildfire risk.
