An Albany Unified School District parcel tax, Measure I ballot question was on the November 3, 2009 ballot for voters in the Albany Unified School District in Alameda County, where it was approved.

Measure I imposed a new parcel tax of $149/year on residential units and three cents per square feet on non-residential parcels. The tax will be in force for five years, and can be increased annually depending on inflation.[1]

At the time of the vote on Measure I, the Albany Unified School District (AUSD) had already imposed two other special parcel tax measures. With the approval of Measure I, the total annual parcel tax for a residential parcel went to $555/year. Measure J, on the same November 3, 2009 ballot as Measure I, was also approved. It rolled all three together into one tax.
