City of Davis Measure “H” asks the voters to renew the existing Park Maintenance Tax of $49 per year on residential units and on non-residential units in amounts specified in the Ordinance, for 20 years, adds an annual 2% inflator, and is expected to generate $1.4 million in the first year to fund maintenance of parks, street trees, greenbelts, bike paths, medians, public landscaping, urban wildlife and habitat, swimming pools, and public recreational facilities.
City of Davis Measure “I” asks the voters to establish a Street and Bike Path Maintenance Tax for $99 per year on residential units and on non-residential units in amounts specified in the Ordinance, to fund maintenance of streets, bike lanes, sidewalks, and related transportation infrastructure, which is estimated to raise $2.8 million, with a 2% annual inflator, for a period of 10 years.
City of Davis Measure “J” 2018 asks voters to allow the development of a parcel of land next to the UCD campus and I-80, at the west end of Olive Drive. The proposal is for 700 apartment units targeted for students. The Citizen’s Right to Vote, approved as Measure J in June 2000 and renewed as Measure R in 2010 requires voter approval for converting such open space or agricultural land to an urban use.
