Local Revenue Measure Advisory Committee

Final Report

Recommendation Summary Table


The residents of San Luis Obispo approved a half-cent sales tax in 2006 (Measure Y). This local revenue source now provides the City with over $6 million annually to provide essential municipal services and build important infrastructure projects for the community. Measure Y includes many accountability provisions, including a sunset clause.

The San Luis Obispo City Council has created the Local Revenue Measure Advisory Committee to:

  1. Analyze the City’s stewardship of Measure Y resources,

  2. Seek community input regarding their preferences and local revenue measure spending priorities,

  3. Develop recommendations specific to the November 2014 General Election regarding alternatives for reauthorization of Measure Y, or the creation of a new revenue measure, and

  4. Assist the City in performing community outreach and education.

The purpose of this web page is to keep interested individuals up to date on the workings of the committee. Below you will find links to relevant documents.
