Proposition 1 on the Nov. 2 ballot calls for a five-year extension of the city’s one-eighth-cent sales tax for park improvements and land acquisition. The tax, if approved, would generate an estmated $12 million through March 2016. The city has promised to complete an array of projects with the money and to set aside $2.03 million to acquire land for community and neighborhood parks. The proposal also includes $4.8 million for improvements to existing parks, $2.07 million for trails and greenbelts and $2.54 million for development of new parks.
