YES! for a better San Diego
Welcome to our home page! We are a broad coalition of tourism and lodging leaders, homeless advocates, working families, and community activists. We are sponsoring a City of San Diego petition to raise new funds to help reduce homelessness, fix citywide streets, and expand tourism in San Diego.
Our measure will increase the tax paid by overnight lodging guests to our city between 1.25 and 3.25 percent depending upon where the lodging facility is located. The measure creates a lock box for the funds so they cannot be used for other purposes and it requires annual independent audits.
The “YES! For a Better San Diego” initiative will raise more than $2 billion to reduce homelessness over the life of the measure, more than $600 million to help fix our streets, and create nearly 7,000 permanent new jobs by modernizing and expanding the San Diego Convention Center.
Stay tuned for more information as our petition drive gets underway. If you have questions or would like to help please click here.
