Si View Parks to hold town hall meeting on ballot measures

Boosters of Si View Metro Parks will host a community meeting on the future of local parks and the upcoming ballot measures aimed at preserving funding for the junior tax district.

The meeting, exploring the “Future of Si View,” is 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5, at Si View Community Center, 400 S.E. Orchard Dr.

Si View’s operations levy will soon hit the county’s levy cap. Without the bulk of its levy, Si View is looking at a raft of cuts. Voter support, in the form of two levy measures designed to make the district whole, would prevent this.

Both measures are slated for the November general election. Proposition 1 would protect 25 cents of the existing levy from being automatically reduced. Proposition 2 is a one-year operations and maintenance (O&M) levy that would restore the remaining 19 cents on a temporary basis.
