Results and AccomplishmentsCommunity leaders succeeded in bringing a referendum to the voters who rejected the development by a large margin. The MAS negotiated a contract of sale with the owner of the property and then obtained significant funding ($15.8 million) from many government and private funding sources. The acquisition was completed in 2003. Shortly thereafter, the MAS transferred title to 364 acres of wetland to the California Department of Fish and Game and 208 acres to the Marin County Open Space District. The MAS retained ownership of 60 acres. The MAS is now managing the restoration design process and will also manage the restoration construction portion of the project. Some funding for construction was provided during the acquisition phase early funding but additional funding for construction is still needed. Partners assisting with the restoration funding the Forest Lattner Foundation, the Fish and Wildlife Service San Francisco Bay Program, and the Marin Community Foundation.
