Last year, the legislature increased taxes and fees on gasoline and certain vehicles to help maintain our crumbling roads, bridges, and highways. They were smart about it, emphasizing maintaining what we have, and including biking and walking infrastructure to the tune of $100 million per year.
But now that funding is under attack. And we need your help to defend it.
Anti-tax activists have gotten Proposition 6 placed on the November ballot. Prop 6 will eliminate this critical funding and the transportation projects it supports, making it much harder to make our streets safe for biking and walking.
We need your help to fight the repeal. And for the month of August, your donation will be doubled. Our friends at Cohen Law Partners have pledged a $10,000 match for safer streets.
Chip in today to defend the gas tax and make our streets safer.

P.S. With your help, we can beat back the repeal effort and make our streets safer for all road users. Chip in now to make the most of this match.
Thanks to our friends at Cohen Law Partners for this generous match.

The City of Santa Monica is updating the 20 year Parks and Recreation Master Plan and has been hosting meetings with the community throughout the summer. The last planned event is this Sunday at the Summer SOULstice Festival – 11am to 1pm.
We encourage you to share your input via the online survey that will be ending soon! This is a great opportunity for all of us to give input and to reinforce community support for more open space and to replace Santa Monica Airport with a Great Park when it closes in 2029.
What kind of park do you want to replace the airport? Let the City know! Miles of protected bike and pedestrian paths? A Bike Campus with public bike repair facilities — a BMX track? How about coffee and snack concessions for people walking, biking and enjoying the park?
The online survey that will take 5-10 minutes and will ask you to drop pins on a map for your favorite beach and park and give feedback about existing recreational programs. Near the end of the survey you will be asked about LOOKING TO THE FUTURE. This will be your opportunity to drop a blue pin to focus on the Airport and put your ideas for a GREAT PARK!
Here is the LINK to the SURVEY: https://app.maptionnaire.com/en/3892
Join us in supporting a Great Park at SMO: More recreation? More Sports? More Nature? More Open Space? This is your chance! Do the survey!
