Measure K

Measure K, a half-cent transactions & use tax (or sales tax), was approved by Pleasant Hill voters at the November 8, 2016 election. The tax took effect April 1, 2017 for a 20-year period. The measure will generate over $4 million each year in additional revenue for the City.

This additional revenue will be used for important City services including:
  • Repaving and maintaining neighborhood streets
  • Maintaining and upgrading the City’s storm drains
  • Adding new sidewalks, and walking and bike paths
  • Constructing a new community library; and
  • Funding other city projects and services that Pleasant Hill residents and the City Council identify as key priorities.

Replacing the Pleasant Hill Library
Pleasant Hill Library is now 56 years old and has numerous physical constraints and significant structural issues. The City is now in the process of hiring an architect to begin the design phase for a new library. For more information on this go to the Library Project page

Measure K Oversight Committee and Mandatory Financial Audits
Measure K established a Citizens' Oversight Committee to ensure that all voter-approved funds are spent appropriately. In addition, the measure requires mandatory financial audits and yearly reports to the community regarding all revenue collected and spent on City projects and services.
