Marin eligible for over $100,000,000 in funding Vote YES on Prop 68: The Parks and Water Bond

This June, California voters will decide whether the state should continue investing in recreation, non-motorized transportation, natural resource and wildlife conservation, drought and flood protection, coastal preservation, clean water, and parks for disadvantaged neighborhoods. Funds from the $4 billion bond would also help Marin’s land managers accomplish numerous public access and restoration projects, such as the Marin Municipal Water District’s Azalea Hill Plan, which includes a new route for bicycles along the old Liberty Gulch road.
