From the Chron: Measure WW Funds Help Preserve Prominent Lafayette Hilltop
Back in January, I wrote about how the East Bay Regional Parks District's Measure WW funds had already been put to good use during the measure's first year. Due to declining property values, land acquisition has become increasingly successful for the district -- and resulted in two big purchases within WW's first thirteen months. Two months after that, here's yet another example: the EBRPD chipped in to help purchase (and hopefully save from development forever) a 23-acre hilltop in Lafayette. It was seen as such a valuable piece of land that even nearby Walnut Creek chipped in. Here's more, from today's Chronicle.
