Make Oakland Better Now! endorses Measure Q, a parcel tax measure designed to generate revenue for city parks improvement, homelessness services and clean water.
Oakland’s City Council passed a resolution to submit a parcel tax to voters on the March primary ballot in 2020. The tax is expected to generate more than $20 million dollars per year. No less than 60% of the net proceeds for parks, landscape maintenance and recreational services, and 30% percent for services to address homelessness.
