SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. – The 2023 Measure A Annual Report marks the 15th anniversary of the voter-approved 0.5 cent transportation sales tax that funds multiple construction projects across the County of Santa Barbara.

In November of 2008, Santa Barbara County voters approved Measure A with a 79 percent majority vote, joining 24 other California counties with a transportation sales tax measure of this type.

The California Transportation Commission recently approved $132.4 million in June of 2023 for the Santa Barbara U.S. Multimodal Corridor Project through Senate Bill 1 for Cycle 3 awards.

“This year’s report underscores our commitment to transparency and accountability in the stewardship of Measure A funds,” said Marjie Kirn, Executive Director of Santa Barbara County Association of Governments. “As we reflect on 15-years since the vote for Measure A, we look to the future with optimism and confidence in continuing our collaborative work to make our community more connected and sustainable.”
