Impartial analysis / Proposal

BRIAN E. WASHINGTON, Marin County Counsel

If this Measure is approved by two-thirds of the votes cast on this special tax proposal, the Ridgewood Permanent Road Division (“Division”) will be authorized to levy a special tax on parcels within the Division of $1,281 per parcel per year for a period of 10 years, beginning in July 2020 (fiscal year 2020-21), resulting in a total assessment of $294,559. The Measure would also allow the Division to assess $100 per parcel per year for ongoing maintenance after the initial 10-year assessment period, with a provision for an annual increase effective July 1 in accordance with the change in the State of California Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers for the previous calendar year.

The special tax is proposed to improve and maintain the road surface of Ridgewood Avenue from North Ferndale Avenue to the end of Ridgewood Avenue. If this Measure passes, the County of Marin may borrow against the projected tax proceeds in order to fund the roadway work in advance.

This Measure was placed on the ballot by a petition signed by the requisite number of voters within the Ridgewood Avenue Permanent Road Division.
