The passage of a new state legislation related to benefit assessments led to necessary adjustments for Proposition A, providing an opportunity to get additional funding approved. The Safe Neighborhood Parks Proposition of 1996, Proposition A (Proposition A 1996) was approved by Los Angeles County voters on November 5, 1996, approving a second assessment for RPOSD with a term of 22 years and adding an additional assessment to each parcel in the District pursuant to the changes introduced by Public Resource Code, Section 5539.9. Also approved by the voters, the Engineer’s Report in 1996 modified the formulas in the 1992 Engineer’s Report accordingly.

The passage of the proposition provided an additional $319 million dollars in funding for the development, acquisition, improvement, restoration and maintenance of parks, recreational, cultural and community facilities and open space lands within the County of Los Angeles, with an increased emphasis on youth employment and enhanced guidelines on how funds would be spent and tracked.
