What could Measure F-20 help fund?

Measure F-20, if passed, could help Grover Beach move forward with addressing community needs that are currently not funded or are underfunded due to the City’s current budget constraints. These include:

  • Repairing, maintaining and improving major city streets that are regional in nature with high traffic volumes -- amounting to approximately $10 million -- such as West Grand Avenue, South Oak Park Boulevard and North 4th Street that are not funded by Measure K-14 funds.
  • Making the City more pedestrian-friendly and accessible through sidewalk improvements and additions. These would help with traffic congestion, improve air quality, and provide healthier and safer ways for students to get to and from school.
  • Assisting local businesses that are weathering the hardships brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic through programs such as microgrants.
  • Encouraging economic development in Grover Beach to help businesses be successful and expand local employment opportunities, which could include continuing to partner with the South County Chambers of Commerce to amplify these efforts
  • Increasing the number of sworn police officers to better meet the volume of service calls received and allow time for proactive community outreach work to resolve issues before they become problems.
  • Securing additional staffing and equipment to ensure a well-functioning fire and emergency medical services operation.
