The Legislature approved funding from Proposition 12: Safe Neighborhood Parks, Clean Water, Clean Air, and Coastal Protection Bond Fund for new acquisitions for the State Park System without specifying particular parcels. This request will authorize the acquisition of approximately 12 acres located adjacent to the existing Tomales Bay State Park. The property is surrounded on three sides by the existing state park and the acquisition will protect the scenic view shed.

Condition of Property
Department of General Services (DGS), Environmental Services Section (ESS) staff conducted a site visit to the Tomales Bay State Park on April 13, 2005. The acquisition consists of an approximately 11.8-parcel (APN 106-220-26) of vacant land located at 16148 State Route One, Point Reyes Station, in an unincorporated area of Marin County, California. The only improvements on the property are two wells and a wooden tent platform.
A Phase I Environmental Assessment Report is not available for this property and is not deemed necessary given the physical setting of the parcel. No potential problems with hazardous materials were observed during the ESS site visit and the property is compatible with the proposed future use, i.e., open space.
The State Public Works Board approved this project for site selection on June 10, 2005.
The purchase price does not exceed estimated fair market value as determined by a DGS approved appraisal.
