In November 2016, 75% of Los Angeles County (County) voters approved the Los Angeles County Safe, Clean Neighborhood Parks and Beaches Measure (Measure A). Funding through the Measure A grant program will be generated in perpetuity through the collection of a parcel tax, with an estimated total annual funding of $96.8 million across the County.
Measure A provides the City of Los Angeles (City) formula-based annual allocations for capital improvement projects under the Community-based Park Investment Program and Neighborhood Parks, Healthy Communities, & Urban Greening Program as well as additional annual allocations under the Maintenance and Servicing Program to offset Proposition A and Measure A funded capital projects.
Park Improvement Plan
On April 2, 2019, City Council approved RAP’s Park Improvement Plan (PIP). The PIP is a three-year planning tool that enables RAP to effectively manage capital projects receiving the Measure A annual allocations funding under Categories 1 and 2. The PIP identified specific parks within the City’s 43 study areas to receive Measure A funding. To effectively develop and complete park projects identified by the PIP, RAP will develop capital projects through a phased approach.
