About Measure BP:
After receiving feedback from the community and a lengthy deliberation, on July 20, the Baldwin Park City Council approved sending Measure BP to the voters of Baldwin Park during the November 8, 2022 election. Measure BP is a ¾ cent sales tax that could generate an additional $6 million to the general fund of the City of Baldwin Park. If approved, it would place Baldwin Park’s sales tax rate at par with the majority of cities in Los Angeles County, including neighboring cities like Azusa, Covina, Pico Rivera, South El Monte and Duarte.
Measure BP requires annual audits and an oversight committee designed to ensure proceeds from Measure BP are be used in accordance with feedback received from the community. Additionally, the revenue from Measure BP can only be used for City purposes inside Baldwin Park.
