The Measure J – 1% Tax Increase
On November 8, 2011 Palm Springs voters approved Measure J, a local revenue measure to maintain local community services and economically revitalize our Downtown.
The Measure J ballot question was as follows: Shall an ordinance to provide funding that cannot be taken by the State and help preserve Palm Springs city services, including without limitation police, fire, library, parks, streets/pothole repair, acquisition and development of garages and parking facilities, installation and maintenance of improvements and facilities for the implementation of the Museum Market Plaza Specific Plan, by enacting a City of Palm Springs 1% sales and use tax, for 25 years, subject to independent annual audits, be adopted?
This site has been created to highlight progress and provide access to information on Palm Springs Measure J projects.
