Chula Vista voters approved Measure P – a temporary,
ten-year, half-cent sales tax to fund high priority infrastructure
needs. Collection of the sales tax began April 1, 2017. The sales tax is
projected to raise $178 million. The Chula Vista City Council has
approved an initial expenditure of $3.2 million of Measure P sales tax
funds for infrastructure. Learn More >
Measure P funds will improve streets throughout the City.
The Measure P Citizens Oversight Committee (COC) is composed of 16
members. The purpose of the COC is to review and report on all Measure P
expenditure plans, financial reports, and audits. Eleven of the COC
members serve as “Designated Members.” Designated Members nominated by
local organizations and individuals such as the Chula Vista Chamber of
Commerce, Chula Vista Youth Sports Council, Chula Vista Growth
Management Oversight Commission, and the Chula Vista Police and Fire
chiefs. The remaining five members are “At-Large Members” selected from a
pool of applicants who applied directly to the City. “At-Large Members”
include at least one resident from each of the four City Council
A special meeting will be held Thursday, November 30 at 6 p.m. at the Public Works Center, 1800 Maxwell Road. In 2018, meetings are scheduled to be held the fourth Thursday of January, April, July, and October.
What is the process of improving the City’s public Alleys?
Financing of concrete alleys is provided through the formation of an assessment district (Resolution 2013-232/Council Policy No. 505-01). In order to initiate an assessment district, you will need to obtain the signatures of at least 60 percent of the property owners on a petition. Under assessment district procedures, the City will take care of design and other staff costs and any utility relocation, while the property owners will need to pay their share of construction costs. At least 50 percent of the weighted vote of property owners (based on assessment amounts) will need to be in favor of the assessment district for the project to be constructed.
What is the City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) for Pavement Rehabilitation?
The City has an annual CIP allocation consisting of major and minor pavement rehabilitation. Major Pavement Rehabilitation projects consist of street overlays and reconstructions throughout the City, and are identified with the prefix “STM”. Minor Pavement Rehabilitation projects are mainly for street preservation and are identified with the prefix “STL”. Pavement maintenance includes the use of ARAM, slurry, chip and other types of seals.
The selection of street segments for both types of projects comes from a five year list of streets selected to match each year’s funding appropriations. Priority is given to high volume and high speed streets classified as collectors and arterials as approved by the City Council’s Resolution number 2007-080.
Measure P Pavement Rehabilitation Project
This new Pavement Rehabilitation Project (STL) is funded by Measure P and intended to be active until 2027. This project will focus on the rehabilitation of residential streets with PCI's ranging from 0 to 25. The street selection for this project varies in that the streets in worst condition, though unlikely to be prioritized in other programs, will be repaired first.
How are the pavement repair and preservation funded?
The following funding sources (approximately $5 million/year) are generally used for maintenance and rehabilitation of pavement with PCIs between 40 and 84:
TransNet: Half-cent sales tax for local transportation projects
Gasoline Tax: Includes excise tax and sales tax
General Fund: Also known as Maintenance of Effort
A new funding source in 2017 is Measure P, which includes approximately $24 million over a 10-year time frame to rehabilitate local streets with PCIs between 0 and 25. Chula Vista voters approved a temporary ten year half-cent sales tax to fund high priority infrastructure needs, including pavement rehabilitation.
