Wildomar Parks Parcel Tax, Measure D (June 2011)
for voters in the City of Wildomar in Riverside County, where it was defeated.
If Measure D had been approved, it would have levied a $28/year parcel tax. The tax would have supported the city's three parks. It costs about $200,000/year to maintain the parks.
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for passage.
