No earlier than 2:30 p.m., the Board will hear a request to consider a San Geronimo Golf Course Initiative Petition. In 2018, the County sought to purchase the 157-acre golf course and preserve it as open space. The acquisition bid was blocked by a court order. The property’s nonprofit owner closed the course in December 2018. The petition would require approval from a majority of countywide voters to change the use of the property to anything other than golf. On January 29, the Registrar of Voters verified the petition signatures and the Board directed staff to create a report on the potential impacts of the proposed initiative. County Counsel recommends that the Board adopt a resolution and order the initiative to be placed on the March 2020 countywide ballot.
The Board accepted the report and adopted a resolution to order the initiative to be placed on the ballot.
