Do you love Marin’s open spaces, parks and agricultural lands? Thank Measure A and its quarter-cent sales tax for protecting it all.

Top budget priorities for the 4,800 residents who participated? Vegetation management and wildland fire fuels reduction. While the majority approved of the parks’ work, 96 percent wanted to keep or increase funding for top projects. These included road, trail and park facilities maintenance and improvements.
