Why BSLT supports Prop 68

California Proposition 68, the Parks, Environment, and Water Bond, is on the ballot on June 5, 2018. A “yes” vote supports this measure to authorize $4 billion in general obligation bonds for state and local parks, environmental protection projects, water infrastructure projects, and flood protection projects.

Access to parks is a public need. Every child deserves to lead a happy and healthy life, but many communities across California lack access to parks and safe places for kids to play and grow.

• Today, demand for our parks exceeds available funding by a factor of 8 to 1, leaving our parks woefully inadequate for the next generation of Californians.
• Prop 68 will invest $725 million for parks in neighborhoods with the greatest need.
• It will provide $30 million to increase safe and equitable access to parks and outdoor recreation areas, improving the physical and mental health of communities across California.
