Educate Yourself on the Proposed Mission Dolores Green Benefit District

Have you heard about the proposed Mission Dolores Green Benefit District? The District would provide enhanced services (above and beyond the City’s existing services) funded via an overlap tax on properties. It requires obtaining support from 30% of property owners support via a petition. Then the City would administer a special election with a ballot sent to property owners within the proposed district. A simple majority of the weighted vote is required to authorize the district. DHIC has not taken a position on this proposal. The Formation Committee organizing for the Mission Dolores GBD is seeking support and volunteers. And “No GBD Tax”, a group opposed to the establishing GBDs in San Francisco, also seeks to educate residents and obtain their support. Please educate yourself by visiting these groups’ websites and talking with your neighbors.
