The city will host a forum Wednesday to discuss the Proposition 401 and Proposition 402 issues on the Nov. 5 ballot.

Interested citizens will have a chance to meet with the city staff one-on-one, hear brief presentations and ask questions.

The forum starts at  6 p.m. at the Randolph Center Performing Arts Building, 200 S. Alvernon Way. 

State law limits how much Tucson, and all Arizona cities, can spend each year. Proposition 401, the Permanent Base Adjustment, seeks to permanently raise the city’s base expenditure limit by $50 million.

The city projects that by July 1, 2015, it will collect more in revenue than it is currently allowed to spend.

More information on Prop. 401 can be found at tucsonaz.gov/permanentbase or by calling 791-4204.

Proposition 402, Plan Tucson, is the city’s proposed replacement to the current General Plan. State law requires municipalities to adopt a new plan or reaffirm an existing plan once every 10 years to guide decisions affecting such issues as economic development, historic preservation, housing, water and energy resources and transportation and land use.

More information about Prop. 402 can be found at tucsonaz.gov/plantucson or by calling 791-4204.
