Vote Yes on Prop 68

BTCEB joins the Bay Area Council, the Trust for Public Land, and the Save the Redwoods League in endorsing Proposition 68, the Parks and Water Bond on June's California ballot, California voters will decide whether the state should continue investing in recreation, non-motorized transportation, natural resource and wildlife conservation, drought and flood protection, coastal preservation, clean water, and parks for disadvantaged neighborhoods.

The biggest allocation of Prop 68 funds ($725 million) would be dedicated to "park-poor neighborhoods", which would include many BTCEB-endorsed projects in East Bay cities like Richmond, Oakland and San Leandro. $200 million would go to local governments for improvement of local parks like Joaquin Miller and Dimond Canyon.

Our friends at Marin County Bicycle Coalition point out that funds from the $4 billion bond would help Marin’s land managers accomplish numerous public access and restoration projects, such as the Marin Municipal Water District’s Azalea Hill Plan, which includes a new route for bicycles along the old Liberty Gulch road.
