WHAT: On December 3rd the County of Los Angeles Fire Department (County LAFD) will be presenting a proposal to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors for approval of a parcel tax initiative. The tax would be set to appear before voters on the March 2020 ballot. If approved, the initiative will place between a 6¢ to 8.9¢ parcel tax per square foot of a building and include a 100,000 square foot cap. This parcel tax will affect all residential development, commercial and industrial buildings. Only exemptions for government and non-profit buildings, and qualifying seniors would apply.
NEXT STEPS: As language becomes available we will distribute the information to our members and provide an "Action Alert" for testimony opportunities closer to the December 3rd hearing date. For more information contact Director of Government Affairs Diana Coronado.
