 Phoenix Voters Approve Parks and Preserve Measure

Phoenix voters today approved the extension of a sales tax for parks and preserves.

In unofficial results, a total of 89,612 votes, or 83 percent, were cast in favor of the proposition, while 18,777 votes, or 17 percent, were cast against it.

The measure will continue a 1/10 of one percent sales tax voters approved in 1999 for parks and preserves improvements and land acquisition. The approved sales tax is set to expire in 30 years.
