Duarte voters have approved by a 2-1 margin a special tax to pay for park maintenance in what city officials said was among the first mail-in elections conducted to comply with a new state tax law. The approval means that homeowners will continue to pay $59.42 a year to maintain 11 neighborhood parks and the city's bicycle trail and greenbelt. The city mailed ballots to 5,372 homeowners asking them whether they wanted to continue to pay the tax.

Duarte voters appeared to have soundly defeated a measure to tax themselves to preserve pristine foothill land that is slated for housing developments, early ballot returns showed Tuesday. Measure A, which would have cost homeowners $48 a year, was losing by a 2-1 margin late Tuesday night with 80% of the ballots counted. Supporters of the measure had hoped to use up to $5 million in tax money to help buy more than 700 acres of privately owned land.

Voters in Duarte will choose between new housing or pristine hillsides in a special election Tuesday that could give a strong boost to the burgeoning land conservation movement in the San Gabriel Valley. Duarte voters--following the lead of voters last year in neighboring Monrovia--will decide whether to tax most homeowners $48 a year to preserve large expanses of the San Gabriel Mountains foothills that reach like chubby fingers into their city of 22,000.
