On behalf of Supervisor Hilda L. Solis, we would like to thank everyone who submitted an application for consideration to the First Supervisorial District 2016-2017 Competitive Tree Planting Excess Funds Grant Program. The Board of Supervisors acting as the Board of the Regional Park and Open Space District (District) officially allocated the funding in December 2016.
Voter Approval of Measure A Will Continue Funding for Parks, Open Space and Natural Local Water Resources
There has been an update to the language in the Los Angeles County Regional Park and Open Space District’s Procedural Guide regarding the Escrow Instructions for acquisition projects.
Our communities have relied on local, voter-approved funding to protect and maintain our neighborhood parks, outdoor areas and water resources for the last 20+ years. With the current funding due to expire in 2019, the Board of Supervisors (Board) directed Los Angeles Regional Park and Open Space District (RPOSD) to prepare a potential local ballot measure to continue this essential locally-controlled funding.
The Board also directed RPOSD to develop an information and education program to ensure that various communities within the County understand where their tax dollars have been expended. Local community information sheets have been prepared to share with you which local parks and recreation facilities have received grants funds from the RPOSD to date.

On March 31, 2016, RPOSD introduced the Potential Local Ballot Measure at the Quarterly Park Summit Meeting. The Potential Local Ballot Measure would continue what Prop A started in 1992, the essential locally-controlled funding that protects parks in cities and communities throughout LA County.
To see how the District proposes to divide and allocate the local funding collected from the potential ballot measure for the development and maintenance of parks in our communities please take a look at the Potential Ballot Measure Chart.
