Why & How the Extension was developed

Fresno County voters passed the first (1987-2007) Measure C half-cent sales tax in 1986, to improve roads and transportation in Fresno County. That measure was scheduled to expire in June 2007, until it was renewed by the voters of Fresno County in November 2006. The Measure C Extension will generate more than $1.7 billion over the next 20 years for transportation.

In consideration of Fresno County’s projected population growth, (44% to 1.33 million), the Council of Fresno County Governments fulfilled a request by community stakeholders to establish the Measure C Reauthorization Steering Committee. This 24-member, community-based committee spent close to a year’s time crafting the 2006 Measure C Extension Expenditure Plan.

The Measure C Extension Plan is a balanced transportation funding plan that was formed  through consensus amongst the committee members. Decisions were driven by a mandate from Fresno County voters and the community-at-large, based on two scientific surveys. The core or vision of the plan is to provide mobility options for all of Fresno County’s residents, helping to maintain Fresno County’s quality-of-life in its amenities and transportation options.
