On Tuesday, Marin County supervisors will consider allowing the Marin Agricultural Land Trust (MALT) to purchase a conservation easement of the 723-acre McDowell Ranch located east of Tomales.
Funds to purchase the property through MALT would come from Measure A, a 2012 sales tax approved by voters. Marin County Parks officials said 20 percent of the money generated from the tax is mandated to go to county farmland that is at risk of being developed.
