Measure FF

Pros and Cons

The Question: Without increasing tax rates, to protect against wildfires; enhance public safety; preserve water quality, shorelines, urban creeks; protect redwoods and parklands in a changing climate; and restore natural areas, shall East Bay Regional Park District be authorized to extend an existing parcel tax of $1 monthly ($12/year) per single-family parcel and 69 cents monthly ($8.28/year) for multi-family units, raising approximately $3.3 million annually, to expire in 20 years.

League Positions are developed after our members investigate the pros and cons of an issue, and after our members reach a consensus. LWVBA positions address Regional Government, Regional Planning, Environment, Natural Resources, Hazardous Materials Management, Social Policy, Surface Transportation, and Airport Transportation.
