Baldwin Park Residents Invited To Participate In Two Measure BP Meetings

Baldwin Park Stakeholders Oversight Committee (SOC) invites residents to share their ideas on how the City can best use revenue generated by Measure BP, a 34-cent sales tax approved by voters last November.

​​The Stakeholders Oversight Committee will organize two community engagement meetings during which the City will solicit resident feedback on where resources are most needed.

Residents and Business Owners make up the Stakeholder Advisory Committee.

Baldwin Park voters approved a change in sales tax in November 2022, which applies to select products and services provided within the city limits.

Other purchases, such as most food, professional health services, or utilities, would be exempt from the levy.

Measure BP would pay for projects to keep local parks clean, roads free of potholes, and schools safe.

Measure BP is a 34-cent sales tax that would generate approximately $6 million per year, or $60 million over 10 years, solely for Baldwin Park residents. No money can be collected by the state or county.

The meetings will be held on two consecutive nights: the first on October 16, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at the Arts & Recreation Center, and the second on October 17, 2023, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., at Barnes Park.

“These community engagement meetings are a tremendous opportunity for Baldwin Park residents to make their voices heard about the change they’d like to see in the City,” said Betsy Lara, Chair of the Stakeholders Oversight Committee. “Our goal is to listen to the community. The greater the turnout, the better.”

The public input collected during the October 16, 2023, and October 17, 2023, engagement meetings will help inform the Stakeholders Oversight Committee’s recommendations to the City Council on its priorities for Measure BP.

“Whether you have a specific proposal or simply want to observe, we strongly encourage residents to be a part of this conversation,” said Baldwin Park City Councilmember Daniel Damian. “We deeply value the community’s input on how we should invest these critical funds.”

Refreshments will be available at both meetings. For additional information or questions, please call (626) 813-5245, Ext. 317.
