The Board will hear a request from County Parks to authorize the Board President to execute an agreement with the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) for $1,332,650 in Measure A Farmland Preservation Program funds for the purchase of an agricultural conservation easement over the Furlong Ranch. The Furlong family has been ranching on the same property just north of Point Reyes Station for more than 60 years. Parks is teaming with MALT to assure that the 609-acre ranch remains as agricultural land. The appraised fair market value of the Furlong easement was $2,619,000. The County grant covers about half the acquisition cost, and MALT is contributing the balance.
The Board authorized the Board President to execute the agreement.
