Voters inside the City of Arlington created the Transportation Benefit District in 2013 and authorized a 0.2% sales tax increase. This sales tax must be approved by the voters every ten years. On election day of Feb. 14, 2023, voters can consider the extension of the sales tax for the purposes of neighborhood traffic calming, pavement preservation, transportation safety improvements, and transportation capital improvements included in the City’s Transportation Improvement Plans.
