LA + Parks = Awesome (YES on Measure A!)
Fifty-one percent of LA County residents don’t live within a ten minute walk of a park. By comparison, in New York, that number is less than 5%. Luckily Measure A would help bridge that gap.
Measure A would provide funding through an annual parcel tax of 1.5 cents per square foot to raise up to $94 million annually to update and build local parks, improve recreation and senior centers, plant drought tolerant landscaping, and more. Additionally, 13% of the funding from the measure would prioritize communities that do not have parks or where parks are in poor condition.
With funding for our parks running dry in Los Angeles -- one of the most dense, overcrowded, urban areas in the nation -- the need for green spaces couldn’t be more urgent, especially for those in park deprived areas.
Join thousands of LA residents to increase park equity this November 8!
