==== JAMES THE BENEFACTOR =========================================
James Hetfield is officially a benefactor of Marin County's park
system. Marin County supervisors agreed to accept a 438.5-acre
easement from Hetfield.
By giving property rights to the county's Department of Parks, Open
Space & Cultural Development, Hetfield is guaranteed the land will
be preserved and its care will be the responsibility of the county.
The area includes a highly visible ridge line separating Lucas Valley
to the north and portions of the upper Ross Valley and San Geronimo
Hetfield and his wife, Francesca, plan to build a 14,000-square-foot
house, swimming pool and another 6,000-square-foot building that
would house a music studio, garage and caretaker's residence on part
of the land they kept for development.
"I'm very excited about this easement and I consider it to be a
generous offer on the part of the Hetfields," Supervisor Steve Kinsey
said Tuesday. "It puts another nail in the coffin for suburban sprawl
in Lucas Valley."
