Quality of Life Measure DD

Information on Measure DD:

Menifee's Voter-Approved Local Funding for City Services

In November 2016 Menifee voters enacted Menifee's Quality of Life Measure (Measure DD). Voter-approved Measure DD funding has allowed the City to maintain and enhance city services and programs before and during the current COVID-19 crises including emergency preparedness, police and fire services, and road safety and traffic mitigation. Menifee's Quality of Life Measure (Measure DD) funds are required to remain local and are not subject to state takeaways. An independent Citizen Oversight Committee provides a review of Measure DD expenditures to ensure funds are spent as voters intended.

The City is now facing the future potential loss of these locally-controlled funds. The City was recently notified that a measure to terminate Menifee's Quality of Life Measure (Measure DD) funding has qualified for the November 2020 election. Menifee's Quality of Life Measure (Measure DD) Repeal Impact Report details the impacts of this potential loss of funding. Measure DD is a voter-approved one-cent sales tax that provides local funding that cannot be taken by the State.

This webpage details the budget impacts of voter-approved funds and answers questions the City has received about the potential repeal of these funds.
