Prop 53 Undermines Local Control

The Bay Planning Coalition officially opposes Proposition 53 (Voter Approval Requirement for Revenue Bonds over $2 Billion).

If passed, Prop 53 would compromise local control of community infrastructure projects, placing some local projects at the mercy of a statewide vote. This means that residents of the Los Angeles area would be voting to approve funding for certain capital projects in the San Francisco Bay Area, and vice versa, ultimately hindering California’s ability to repair and replace old, unsafe infrastructure.

“The Bay Planning Coalition is a non-profit organization well known for its advocacy and credibility in the San Francisco Bay Area corporate and environmental community. When we speak about an issue, legislators and regulators listen.”
