Belmont Streets and City Services Measure Enacted by Voters 

Measure I

On August 12, 2016, City, County, and State agencies finalized the November 2016 ballot. Belmont residents will have the opportunity to vote on Measure I, the only local measure on the November 2016 ballot.

As enacted, Measure I, also known as the Belmont Streets and City Services Measure, is a ½ cent local funding measure that will generate approximately $1.3 million annually. Measure I is a general sales tax measure, and could be used for infrastructure repairs such as neighborhood streets, roads, and storm drains, as well as public safety. Measure I will expire in 30 years, and requires citizen’s oversight, independent annual audits, and all funds spent locally. No Measure I funds may be taken by the State or used for other purposes. It is expected that the sales tax will begin to be collected on or about April 1, 2017.
