About the Committee

In June 1975 the City of Belvedere and Town of Tiburon entered into a Joint Powers Agreement that established the Belvedere-Tiburon Joint Recreation Committee, known today as The Ranch Board of Directors. The purpose of the agreement was to create a recreation committee that would formulate, administer and operate recreation programs and facilities for the residents of Belvedere and Tiburon.


Through the years it has been expressly understood that the purpose of creating a separate public entity was to ensure that recreation services for Tiburon Peninsula residents would be supported by participant fees rather than subsidized by tax dollars.

The Organization's ability to maintain a self-supporting status can be attributed to the Committee's emphasis on providing quality recreation programs while strictly allocating available resources. The Organization's budget supports four part-time administrators with hours totaling an equivalent of 2.85 full time positions. The Committee has been careful not to obligate the agency to high overhead costs that are associated with owning and maintaining facilities, but rather in partnership using other public facilities.

About the Organization

The Ranch offers over 500 classes and activities each year and registers over 4,800 participants in association with these programs! We look forward to being able to share with you all the wonderful programs and services we have to offer.
