MEASURE "O" - Open Space Bond Measure

In 1987, the citizens of Redlands passed a $7.2 million bond issue called "Measure "O." The money was designated for the purchase of land for parks, recreation, citrus preservation and open space, but did not include the development of the property. A citizen's group was appointed to an Open Space Committee which met regularly for nearly five years to review all possible land acquisitions and make recommendations to the City Council for their final approval.

In 1999, the last purchase of open space land was made to complete acquisitions under the Measure "O" Program.

Parks & Recreation Advisory Commission Information
