How is the City of San Rafael planning to address aging infrastructure needs?

The City of San Rafael is currently considering options for funding improvements to aging streets, storm drains, libraries and other public infrastructure. One option is placing a measure on the November 2022 ballot to increase the existing property transfer tax by 1% – which is only paid when a property is bought or sold in San Rafael. This measure would require approval from a majority of San Rafael residents and is estimated to provide $8 million annually in locally controlled funding to support city services and infrastructure.
