Measure A: How will local towns spend park, recreation money?

Original post made by Good neighbor, another community, on Oct 3, 2006

When you look at Measure A on the Nov. 7 ballot, think about how it will affect your local park and recreation programs.

The measure would authorize a 1/8 cent sales tax in San Mateo County -- at an annual cost per person of $18.10 -- for parks and recreation functions.

Among specific annual allocations to your towns:

- Atherton, $205,000
- Menlo Park, $328,733
- Portola Valley, $205,000
- Woodside, $205,000
- Ladera Recreation District, $90,660
- Midpeninsula Open Space District, $634,620.

Does anyone out there know how the local towns plan to spend this money?

For more information or to volunteer for the campaign, e-mail: info@parksforthefuture.com, or go to: Web Link

The phone number is (650) 794-2000.
