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

The Parks &  Recreation Advisory Commission recommends to the City Council policies for the acquistion, development, and improvement of parks and open space in addition to duties relating to recreation.  Regularly scheduled Park & Recreation Advisory Commission meetings are held bi-monthly on the 2nd Thursday of odd numbered months at 2:30 p.m. in the City Council Chambers, 35 Cajon Street, Suite 2.  These meetings are open to the public.
