Measure A provides much-needed funding for safe, clean neighborhood parks, beaches and open spaces in every area of Los Angeles County. Improvements to our parks are crucial to improving the health of our watershed and our River.
Measure A provides an important funding source to ensure a healthier city, and encourages more residents to get outside and enjoy it. We urge a “YES” vote on L.A. County Measure A.
Los Angeles’ fourth largest park is a good example of why county residents need to pass Measure A on Nov. 8.
BikeSGV strongly supports adequate funding for parks in Los Angeles County. Many of the highest need communities in the San Gabriel Valley lack adequate park space and safe facilities for children, families, and adults to safely recreate and recharge from the demands of our everyday lives. Green space and trees also have proven physical and mental health benefits, not to mention environmental and social benefits. Over the last 25 years, two measures (both titled Proposition A) have provided funding for parks across Los Angeles County. One of those measures expired last year, and the other will expire in 2019. If we fail to pass Measure A this year, current parks funding will disappear, which will directly impact residents, especially youth and families, across LA County.
Parks and access to clean water supports healthier and longer lives. Every child deserves this! #YesOnMeasureA
Measure A brings its share of controversies, as all tax measures do, but it is carefully crafted and a responsible successor to the expired and expiring taxes. The Times urges voters to say yes.
Los parques y espacios abiertos son imprescindibles para la buena salud de los habitantes de Los Ángeles. Ellos proveen la oportunidad de una tener un sitio que un impacto directo para mejorar la calidad de vida de la comunidad latina. Es necesario mantener lo que tenemos y ampliar los lugares de recreación, la forma de lograrlo es votando en favor de la Medida A.
Audubon California and an increasing number of area Audubon chapters fully support a ballot measure on the November Los Angeles County ballot that will provide a lasting source of funding for park improvements and maintenance. Measure A, also called the Safe, Clean Neighborhood Parks Measure of 2016, will raise nearly $95 million through a parcel tax specifically for Los Angeles County parks.
This November, Los Angeles County residents will vote on Measure A, an initiative to replace much-needed funding to build, maintain, and improve our local parks, beaches, and open spaces. At stake is access to parks and open space for County residents—particularly low-income people of color.
A big thank you to the Los Angeles League of Conservation Voters (LALCV) for endorsing Measure A — and leading the way to a better Los Angeles for EVERYBODY.
