MEASURE A KICK-OFF EVENT

Held Thursday, March 2, 2017 at the intersection of Walnut Avenue and East Jackson Street, Long Beach, 90805

City officials celebrated the kick off of approximately $150 million in citywide infrastructure improvements. Work at this location includes asphalt, sidewalk, curb and gutter repairs; slurry sealing; and ADA accessibility improvements, which are illustrative of the citywide street improvements taking place over the next several years.


Measure A is a ballot initiative, approved by nearly 60% of Long Beach voters on June 7, 2016, which added a transactions and use (sales) tax for a period of ten years on the sale and/or use of all tangible personal property sold at retail in the City. The passage of Measure A represents a historic opportunity for Long Beach to make significant and needed investments in our public infrastructure and to enhance and maintain critical Public Safety services.
