Measure R has made so much possible, without it many infrastructure improvements, whether it be a road widening, freeway interchange, bike lane, or sidewalk, would simply not exist. This is because Measure R has allowed the County to “Leverage,” allowing the County to pledge a percentage to receive a grant. The County had a hard time doing this before the Measure.
Promises Made, Promises Kept
Statewide attention has been brought to Tulare County from Measure R. With the half-cent sales tax, many projects were completed within 5 years that were on the 15 year timeline.

Key to the success and future success of Measure R is the ability within the initiative to advance projects that are shovel-ready as funding becomes available. Many of the projects would not have been possible in the foreseeable future without Measure R. With Measure R anything is possible with our ability to leverage funds.
