Measure AA -- a $300 million bond measure for the Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District -- received approval Tuesday by almost exactly two-thirds of the voters, the level required for passage.
With all precincts counted, the yes vote in San Mateo, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties totaled 48,419, which is 130 votes over the two-thirds' voter approval required for passage.
The vote count by county is:
● San Mateo County: 17, 167 yes and 9,005 no.
● Santa Clara County: 31,251 yes and 15,009 no.
In Santa Cruz County, only one vote was cast and it was for the measure.
The district wants the authority to issue up to $300 million in bonds to improve, preserve and restore its properties, and to purchase land needed to connect trails and preserve plant and animal habitats.
