LWV Bay Area – Yes on AA

SFBAwaterfrontcropThe purpose of the San Francisco Bay Clean Water, Pollution Prevention and Habitat Restoration Measure AA is to protect and restore San Francisco Bay to benefit future generations by reducing trash, pollution, and harmful toxins, improving water quality, restoring habitat for fish, birds, and wildlife, protecting communities from flood and increasing shoreline public access and recreational areas.

Measure AA would generate about $25 million per year, totaling $500 million over 20 years, to fund shoreline projects for protection and restoration.

“I am supporting Measure AA because very few ballot measures provide a regional and sustainable revenue of funding to protect our wildlife habitat, enhance our wetlands, reduce pollution and trash on our coastline while increasing public access and recreational areas and opportunities for our constituents,” Alameda County Supervisor Scott Haggerty has said.

Supporters agree that funds are critical to help restore and protect wetlands and wildlife habitat for future generations.

Passing Measure AA to restore our Bay would create urban open space for recreation and increased public access to the shoreline, including extending the Bay Trail and completing gaps on it.
