To Friends of Tiburon Open Space,
Today Martha and Marin County met in private to discuss the open issues and plan next steps. I was included.
The issues didn’t change: there are still disagreements about the restrictions Marin County placed on the project when the Board of Supervisors certified the Environmental Impact Report on October 3rd.
Martha counsel will now file documents detailing their claims and Marin County will respond. The Federal Court date is now set for January 11, 2018.
Well before January, Tiburon Open Space (TOS) will retain water hydraulic experts to evaluate the Martha project’s ability to fight a grass/forest fire such as in Napa/Sonoma. TOS will also have legal bills assessing whether aspects of the project may not be safe.
We can really use your help. Please consider a donation as the year end approaches. And, if you can, invite several of your friends, living nearby or far away, to like us on Facebook. We need more people sounding the call for saving Martha.
Ultimately, our goal is to buy the land for everyone forever. Thank you.
All the best,
