A special property tax to fund capital improvements for the San Francisco Unified School District — including seismic work, fire and safety upgrades, and other maintenance — was approved.
Measure A is a 20-year extension of a tax previously approved by voters in June 1990. The renewed tax is not to exceed $32.20 per parcel for single-family residential and nonresidential parcels, and $16.10 per dwelling unit for mixed-use and multifamily residential parcels.
Unlike the previous tax, the maximum rate will be adjusted for inflation. Also, the district will be able to spend $16 million a year of the tax revenue rather than the previous $12 million.
Homes with residents 65 years and older are eligible for an exemption.
