On June 5, 2018, California voters will have a chance to consider a $4.1 billion parks and water bond, the first parks and water bond to appear on a state ballot in 12 years. San Mateo County Parks Foundation endorses Proposition 68 and urges your support of it too.
Over $1.2 billion is for parks, including:
- $725 million in grants for parks in park-poor areas
- $218 million for existing state parks, including $5 million for local agencies that operate a unit of the state park system (i.e. San Bruno Mountain)
- $30 million in competitive grants for local park and open space districts to create, expand or restore parks
