Please contact Stuart Brown Recreation Manager at (760) 934-8989 ext. 210 for any questions related to the 2013 Measure U fall award process.


Applicants seeking funding for capital or programming projects are required to complete Application #1, while event applicants complete and submit Application #2.  Both of these forms are available in the “Application Downloads” tab (below).  Upon request, staff can provide word documents for completion by the applicant. 

Applicants are asked to review the Measure U Applicant Information document that provides additional information on the application process. If your organization was a recipient of Measure U funds, Town Council requires that each organization demonstrate that they have used the funds appropriately and for the purpose(s) it was awarded. 
As such, a Measure U Performance Report is required to be completed and returned within 90 days after the completion of your project/service/agreement or upon receipt of purchased and used Measure U Equipment. 

This Performance Report has to be completed prior to and submitted with an additional Measure U funding application. The recipient may also wish to present their Performance Report to the Measure U Application Committee as a presentation.


The Measure U Application Committee will evaluate each application using the Measure U Project Filter and Checklist and score the “Project Filters” from 1 to 5 using the established ratings guideline. If the application fails the project filter stage, it does not continue into the funding process. The Committee is in the process of developing an evaluation form specifically for event applications. 

One Measure U Project Filter and Checklist per application will be created by consensus from the Measure U Application Committee.


All 2013 Measure U fall applicants are required to meet with Staff prior to completing your application. Staff consists of representatives from the Recreation, Public Works, and Community Development Departments including Recreation Commissioners (as necessary). 

Staff would perform technical procedures along with informative review of the application. Please contact Recreation Manager and Public Information Officer, Stuart Brown to schedule a meeting at (760) 934-8989 ext. 210.
