Measure C Community Meetings

Measure C, the Larkspur Street Repair and Essential City Services Measure, overwhelming passed in November 2013. The five-year measure implemented a sales tax to help address Larkspur’s aging and deteriorating neighborhood streets and roads, pothole repair needs, and help fund essential city services, such as maintaining police and fire protection.

In July, the City Council will consider whether to place a renewal of Measure C on the November 2017 ballot. A recent community survey indicated that the poor condition of our roads remains a top priority of the community, along with maintaining public safety and improving our storm drain system.

Because Measure C has a short-term, the City has been careful to maximize the impact of taxpayer dollars. Much work has been accomplished, but the need exceeds the funding Measure C provides.

We invite you to attend a presentation about how Measure C dollars have been put to work in the community and how renewing the sales tax can empower the City to accelerate road repairs and fix every public street in Larkspur, while still supporting other essential needs, such as 911 response and protecting the Bay from stormwater runoff.

On May 2, the presentation will be at 6:30pm in the City Council Chambers at 400 Magnolia Avenue. We will discuss Measure C generally, as well as the specific challenges we face in the neighborhoods around Downtown Larkspur.

On May 9, the presentation will be at 6:30pm at the Community Room at the Central Marin Police Building, 250 Doherty Drive. We will discuss Measure C generally, as well as the specific challenges we face in the neighborhoods along Doherty Drive.

On May 22, the presentation will be at 9:30am in the Central Marin Police Building, 250 Doherty Drive. We will discuss Measure C generally, and highlight some of the more difficult road issues the City faces.

On May 30, the presentation will be at 6:30pm in the at the Central Marin Police Building, 250 Doherty Drive. We will discuss Measure C generally, as well as the specific challenges we face in Greenbrae and the other neighborhoods north of Corte Madera Creek.
