Measure K

Measure K, a ½ cent transactions & use tax (or sales tax) for 20 years, was approved by Pleasant Hill voters at the November 8, 2016 election. The tax takes effect April 1, 2017. 

Revenue from Measure K will allow the City to address infrastructure and service priorities that Pleasant Hill residents have indicated are important. The measure will generate an estimated $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, and fixing potholes
  • 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 have identified 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 including seismic and ADA compliance issues, a leaky roof, asbestos in the ceilings and walls, no sprinkler system for fire suppression and inadequate HVAC. The Pleasant Hill Library Task Force has determined that a new library is needed to satisfy the community’s current needs for large programming spaces and 21st century learning facilities.

Measure K Oversight Committee and Mandatory Financial Audits
Measure K will establish 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.
