George Lucas may have taken the Grady Ranch project off the table but Marin County Supervisors are not letting him go without pulling out all the stops to get him back.
Members of the public were encouraged to attend the supes meeting Tuesday and voice support for the project. Now a social media effort, including Facebook, the county's website and an email where letters of support can be directed have been quickly been put in place. The supervisors also adopted and passed a resolution asking the company to proceed with the plans for Grady Ranch.
Marin's District 5 Supervisor Judy Arnold, who represents most of Novato, sent out this email to her constituents.
Thank you to the dozens of Marin residents who turned out at this morning’s Board of Supervisors meeting to voice your support for the Lucasfilm Grady Ranch project. It is clear to me that there is overwhelming community support for this project, in both the immediate neighborhood and throughout Marin. I hope that George Lucas will hear the many eloquent voices that are appealing to him to stay and move forward with his vision for Grady Ranch.
All the members of the Board of Supervisors are continuing to do everything that can be done to bring this project to fruition. The County has also created an email account called ReconsiderGradyRanch@marincounty.org where community members can email their thoughts of encouragement, and we’ll post on our webpage, Facebook, etc. and forward to the Skywalker Properties team.
We have added a web page to the County website at: http://www.marincounty.org/Home/Main/Grady%20Ranch. There is also a link on the County Home Page.
Please consider adding your voice, and I hope that you will also share this information with everyone you know. George Lucas and Lucasfilm have contributed so much to Marin; environmentally, economically and also to the overall wellbeing of our community, and we hope to show him that Marin remains the best place for Lucasfilm’s future.
Supervisor Judy Arnold
