All registered voters now have an opportunity to expedite the landscaping project between Santa Barbara and Davis boulevards by voting at the Jan. 31 presidential primary election in favor of authorizing the county to borrow the funds needed to complete the project.
If the voting results approve this authorization, the project can begin in late 2012 or early 2013 rather than having to wait till 2017.
Be aware that there will be no tax increase if this passes and the millage increase already in effect for this project will be used to repay the loan.
If you claim that your primary residence is on Radio Road between Santa Barbara and Davis you are eligible to vote on this authorization no matter what your party affiliation.
I not only strongly encourage all eligible voters to vote but ask that you vote in favor of the loan authorization.
Also, please be reminded that you may also make use of early voting which begins on Jan. 16.
