MEASURE H & HH

Measure H, if passed, would increase the transfer tax of any SM property sold
for over 1 million from 3% to 9%. Measure HH would set those funds aside for affordable housing.

Proponents believe that these measures will help restore funds to affordable housing after the collapse of the Santa Monica Redevelopment Agency.

Opponents believe that this tax is an exorbitant increase, targets only a few, and will give developers even more money to build high density, multi-floor projects.
CITY COUNCIL PICKS WORTHE GROUP TO DEVELOP BERGAMOT

Is big bluebus service

bad blue bus service


in WILMONT?

Complaints by several Wilmont members has focused the board's attention on the poor BBB service in our area.  The primary crosstown service for Wilmont is the 41 line which goes from Montana down 20th to SM College and returns via 14th Street. But this service is, in effect, a one way trip to crosstown or to Expo on week nights because the bus stops running at 7:30pm. There's no service at all on weekends and most major holidays.  The BBB doesn't have viable cross-town service for the Wilshire Montana Neighborhood.

Take the BBB survey and let them know we need our neighborhood to connect with the rest of the city and with the Expo Line. You can take the survey here.
