Thank you voters for passing Measure J
In November 2016, voters overwhelmingly approved “Measure J,” a special tax on property to help support Cordova Recreation and Park District’s goal of providing safe, clean and accessible parks and facilities to the community. We understand that parks are your priority and we thank you for your support of CRPD and for trusting the District with your funds!
Measure J will help fund infrastructure and facility improvements and replacements, increased safety and security and increased maintenance.
Public services and facilities that can be financed by Measure J include:
- Acquisition and construction of public parks, open spaces and pathways
- Maintenance, repair and replacement of parks, open spaces and pathways
- Recreational activities and programs for seniors and youth including after-school activities, tutoring and sports
- Security patrols, monitoring devices, security cameras and security lighting
- Upgrades to ensure safety and accessibility for persons with disabilities
- Repair and replacement of facilities due to vandalism, graffiti and wear-and-tear
