No Argument Against was submitted

Arguments FOR

EVERY Measure F1 penny will benefit local HARD parks and facilities. These funds CANNOT be taken by the State or used for other purposes.

Taxpayer protections are REQUIRED. NO funds are allowed for administrators' salaries or pensions. Independent Citizens' Oversight and mandatory audits will ensure funds are spent properly.

 

 

Arguments FOR

Safe, clean park and recreation facilities protect property values, keep our community strong, and provide youth with positive alternatives to drugs, gangs and crime.VOTE YES on Measure F1 to maintain the quality of our local parks, recreation facilities, and green spaces provided by Hayward Area Recreation and Park District (HARD).

For over 70 years, the residents of Hayward, Castro Valley, San Lorenzo, Ashland, Cherryland, Fairview and surrounding communities have enjoyed safe, clean, well-maintained parks and recreation facilities provided by HARD. These

are YOUR parks, owned by nearly 300,000 residents living in HARDs service area.

Unfortunately, since 1978 the State has severely cut HARDs funding by tens of millions of dollars annually. Despite the funding loss, the District has worked tirelessly to be fiscally responsible while enriching the lives of local residents by providing recreation activities, parks and facilities that promote health and wellness, learning and fun.

Measure F1 provides a prudent plan to repair and upgrade HARD parks and facilities for our continued benefit.

Measure F1 will:

· Improve the safety, quality, cleanliness and attractiveness of neighborhood parks

· Rehabilitate children's playgrounds

· Upgrade restrooms at HARD sites

· Expand senior citizen and disabled access to parks/recreational areas

· Create/maintain walking paths and bike trails

· Renovate/expand parks, trails, and recreation areas
