The board of the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District is expected to vote Wednesday to place a $300 million bond measure on the June ballot.
The district says the money would be spent on projects to expand public access; protect redwood forests; manage land that feeds lakes, streams and waterways; preserve agriculture along the San Mateo Coast; and restore native vegetation.
The increase in the property tax rate would not exceed $3.18 per $100,000 of assessed valuation, the district says. Passage would require approval by two-thirds of the voters in the district, which includes large parts of San Mateo and Santa Clara counties, and a portion of unincorporated Santa Cruz County.
The regular board meeting starts at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the administrative office at 330 Distel Circle in Los Altos.
More information is available on the district's website.
