What is Measure T?

Measure T is the City of Hayward’s responsibility to provide public services and facilities essential to community safety and quality of life. The City is working hard to maintain the quality of life that residents tell us they value—safe neighborhoods, help in an emergency, decent roads and more. However, as our population and demand for services continue to grow, we as a city continue to confront expenses that are growing faster than revenues. If approved by local voters, Measure T will adjust the Real Property Transfer Tax (RPTT) to provide funds without increasing the annual cost of living for Hayward residents.
