Join The Trust for Public Land in support of Measure E
Investing in our natural infrastructure, our parks and green spaces, is essential to tackling all of the urgent issues we face: public health, climate resilience, and clean air and water.
Please join The Trust for Public Land and Citizens for Parks and Open Space by voting for Measure E.
The Monterey Peninsula Regional Parks District will have a November Ballot Measure, Measure E, to replace critical local funding to acquire coastal lands, beaches, creeks, rivers, wildlife habitat; maintain/improve neighborhood parks, trails, playgrounds; and increase recreational access to natural areas. The funding, currently $25.26 per year for single family homes, would be replaced at the same rate, ultimately providing $1.2 million annually for local investment.
Since its formation in 1972, the Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District has been entrusted to acquire and protect lands for the express purpose of preserving open space and providing recreational opportunity. Since then, the District has protected approximately 13,050 acres of open space, acquiring or helping to acquire a total of 24 parks and open spaces.
