Claremont Finishes San Gabriel's Foothills Purchase

An Agreement Has Been Reached! City to Purchase Johnson's Pasture for $11.5M (Jun 12, 2007)

On Tuesday, June 12, after months of quiet negotiations, the Claremont City Council announced that it had reached an agreement with the owners to purchase Johnson's Pasture for $11.5 million. Presumably, the purchase price will satisfy the State of California's requirements, making the City eligible for State grants.

Congratulations to all who worked so hard on two campaigns to make this happen. And congratulations to the citizens of Claremont, who voted in record numbers to acquire the Johnson's Pasture as a habitat for animals and plants, a recreational resource, and our backyard touchstone with nature. Now we can be sure it will be there for generations to come!
