Measure J Information

Thank you for passing My Parks Enhancement Fund

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 is now known as My Parks Enhancement Fund: Investment for Better Parks! It will help fund infrastructure and facility improvements and replacements, increased safety and security and increased maintenance.
