The Sonoma County Transportation Authority is in the process of developing a proposal for a ballot measure to extend the current Measure M quarter-cent sales tax. The 2004 Expenditure Plan allocated 20% for pavement improvements on local roads. The funding of Highway 101 in Sonoma County is now complete, so the new plan can provide much more funding for local roads.
Three years ago, the 2017 SCTA Strawman Expenditure Plan was contemplating 70% for local roads. The current 2020 SCTA Strawman Expenditure Plan allocates only 40% to local roads, despite strong support in the polls (see the 2020 Voter Survey) for fixing local roads and streets.
