1st-ever parcel tax to restore San Francisco Bay headed to voters

San Francisco Chronicle

A first-of-its-kind ballot measure that would use a parcel tax to pay for a suite of wetlands and habitat restoration projects on San Francisco Bay will be put before voters in all nine Bay Area counties, a government authority decided Wednesday. . . Baykeeper staff scientist Ian Wren said, “This will bring in a reliable funding source and it could be used to leverage federal matching funds. But to accomplish everything we want to accomplish, we’re going to need even more money than this parcel tax can provide.”
