CHICO, Calif. - Chico voters casting their ballots will decide if CARD - the Chico Area Recreation and Park District - will get a major financial shot in the arm.

If passed, Measure A would bring CARD an estimated $3 million per year for capital improvements to parks and other facilities by:

  • providing more security
  • repairing upgrading playgrounds, swimming pools, sports fields
  • improving maintenance and accessibility
  • completing park construction projects

Raising $3 million annually can only happen with a special tax - which is what voters are being asked to approve on March 3 - $85 a year for each parcel.

If approved, that tax will remain in effect forever, unless voters choose to end it. It will also increase from time to time, according to the consumer price index.

A "yes" vote means you approve of the special tax.

A "no" vote means rejection of the special tax.

Additionally for Measure A to pass, it requires a 2/3 majority, which historically can be a tough mark to reach.
