-
Sonoma County to spend $1.6 million for conservation easement on 396 acre Gilardi ranch near Bodega.


“The action prevents development of four estate homes on the ranch that would have been allowed under rural residential zoning and maintains the single residence that stands on the ranch…. With the Gilardi ranch conservation easement, nearly 10,000 acres of dairy and ranch lands from Petaluma to the ocean that have come under open space district protection. Funding comes from the quarter-cent sales tax reauthorized by voters in 2006.”
