To improve the quality of life for residents of the Arden Manor Recreation and Park District by providing security patrol services for the parks and neighborhoods of the District, improving and renovating parks, community buildings, and aquatics facilities, and adding park and facility safety features, shall the District be authorized to levy a parcel tax for 20 years, with annual oversight?

Arguments FOR

ARGUMENT IN FAVOR OF MEASURE Q 

Measure Q is a parcel tax which will fund neighborhood security patrol services, improve parks and amenities, renovate community facilities, and additional park safety features within the boundaries of the Arden Manor Recreation and Park District (Arden Way, Fair Oaks Blvd., Watt Ave., Fulton Ave.). These improvements aim to improve the quality of life for residents of the Arden Manor Recreation and Park District by creating safer neighborhoods and parks for community members of all ages to enjoy. 

Measure Q funding will be used only by the Arden Manor Recreation and Park District and may not be shifted or diverted to any other state or local agency, meaning that the investment by the community will be used solely within District boundaries and under the control and oversight of District residents. This funding will ensure that regardless of economic conditions or future tax shifts, neighborhood parks and facilities will be maintained and developed, improving the quality of life for residents. 

Since 1992, Proposition 98 has diverted over $3.9 million dollars from the Arden Manor Recreation and Park District budget resulting in the District’s inability to repair and improve parks and facilities due to a lack of annual funding. Measure Q would provide the funding to repair and renovate neighborhood parks and facilities, creating exceptional public spaces for District residents. Measure Q funds will allow for renovating existing parks and facility upgrades and the repair of aging infrastructure to occur simultaneously. The funding from Measure Q will also provide neighborhood security patrol services and improved park lighting and safety features in order to protect the interests and investments of the community. 

 

Please vote Yes on Measure Q and help to ensure that together we can make Arden Manor a safe, healthy, and prosperous community for current and future generations.
