On November 8, 2011, Palm Springs voters approved Measure J, a dedicated local revenue measure to maintain local community services and revitalize Downtown. Measure J became effective April 1, 2012, and increased the local sales and use tax by 1%.
The Measure J ballot question was as follows:
"Shall an ordinance to provide funding that cannot be taken by the State and help preserve Palm Springs city services, including without limitation police, fire, library, parks, streets/pothole repair, acquisition and development of garages and parking facilities, installation and maintenance of improvements and facilities for the implementation of the Museum Market Plaza Specific Plan, by enacting a City of Palm Springs 1% sales and use tax, for 25 years, subject to independent annual audits, be adopted?"
