Marin is exploring purchase of 110-acre Tiburon Ridge property
Marin County has opened the door to possibly purchasing the 110-acre Martha Co. property on the Tiburon Ridge to preserve the land as open space.
Convening as the Marin County Open Space District board of directors, the Board of Supervisors on May 17 met in closed session with staff and the county’s chief real-estate negotiator to discuss price and terms of acquisition, as well as possible next steps toward putting a parcel tax on the Nov. 8 ballot to help finance the purchase of the land, which is currently for sale for $63 million.
Marin County Parks and Open Space District Director and General Manager Max Korten called the session an “initial conversation” and declined to elaborate on the specifics of the discussion.
“It’s no secret that the county and Tiburon have been interested in acquisition of that parcel for decades,” he said. “The county is willing to help the community where it can.”
