Dear Friend,


I wanted to let you know that Measure W (Vacant Property Tax) implementation ordinance will be heard at the Finance and Management Committee tomorrow morning at City Hall. Here are the details of the event:

 

Finance and Management Committee
Tuesday September 24th, 9:30am

Oakland City Hall, Hearing Room 1 (first floor)
1 Frank H. Ogawa Plaza, Oakland, CA

 

I know this Measure has been a big topic in District 4 and currently the Administration is putting forth language that, I believe, honors the spirit of Measure "W". The language goes after the speculators who are sitting on vacant land for profit, but provides exemptions for adjoining parcels for use as yard space, low income households, land that is unbuildable, and others.

 

Your voices are important and have been heard by me and the Administration, thank you so much for stepping up and making sure this tax is equitable and works for all of Oakland. You can submit an online speaker card here to give further public comment at tomorrow's hearing.

Hope to see you there! 

 

Sincerely,

 
Sheng Thao
Council Member, District 4
