How soon would the sales tax funding be implemented and put to use? 

If approved by voters in November and levied by the Board of Commissioners, the sales tax would be implemented in April 2023. In some cases, funding could be utilized for new opportunities in the first six months like increased hours for Wave, design for new trails, and improved crosswalks. Other projects will take time to implement but the planning and funding leverage can begin now, like the Rail Realignment Project, construction of new trails and sidewalks, and increased frequency for bus service. But with a quarter cent sales tax providing a dedicated and sustainable source of funding, these opportunities would be within our grasp and community’s vision.
