Alameda County Livermore: Voters overwhelmingly approved Measure K, a plan to modify the urban growth boundary to allow construction of 1,500 houses and preservation of some 2,000 acres of farmland and undeveloped property. Pleasanton: More than 63% of voters supported a $50 million bond issue to purchase land in the city which is owned by the City of San Francisco and slated for development. But that was not enough to win the two-thirds majority required for Measure I approval. Contra Costa County Diablo: Voters in the unincorporated area of Diablo rejected a proposal to limit the size of houses on large lots. Los Angeles County Glendora: More than 60% of voters approved a rezoning plan to permit a Wal-Mart and a Home Depot. Monterey County City of Monterey: More than 60% of voters rejected an initiative that would have placed restrictions on future development of Cannery Row and other oceanfront areas. Orange County Countywide: Voters readily approved Measure F, which requires two-thirds voter approval for future jails, hazardous waste facilities, and airports. The measure was sponsored by south county cities opposed to a civilian airport at El Toro. Twice before, voters approved an airport at El Toro. Huntington Beach: Voters rejected an initiative that would have blocked construction of a Wal-Mart. Seal Beach: Voters affirmed a City Council decision to approve a 300,000-square-foot retail project. Riverside County Indian Wells: Voters in this affluent desert community approved the concept of building a 101-unit low-income senior citizen complex. The vote was an "Article 34" election, referring to a provision in the California Constitution requiring voter approval for low-income projects. Indian Wells has traditionally been resistant to low-income housing despite a large redevelopment treasury; however, this was the second time city voters have approved a low-income housing development. Sacramento County Elk Grove: Voters in this unincorporated community of 54,000 people south of Sacramento approved incorporation as a new city after 25 years of trying. San Joaquin County Tracy: Voters in this rapidly growing, San Joaquin Valley commuter town narrowly rejected an initiative that would have restricted residential building permits to 750 per year. The city has been approving between 1,200 and 1,500 units per year. San Luis Obispo County Countywide: County voters approved the DREAM initiative, an advisory measure that calls upon the county to prohibit development on the property surrounding the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant when it is decommissioned. San Mateo County South San Francisco: A referendum on the city's decision to rezone land for a Costco was approved by some 63% of voters. Santa Barbara County City of Santa Barbara: Nearly two-thirds of voters approved a measure that allows the city's redevelopment agency to develop or acquire up to 181 units of low-income housing every year. Measure Y was an Article 34 election. Santa Clara County San Jose: Voters rejected an initiative that would have restricted the city's ability to expand San Jose airport until highway and light-rail improvements around the airport are made. Before the election, city officials agreed to provide many of the road and transit improvements, a move that reduced support for Measure O. Los Gatos: Voters in five unincorporated "pockets" and "islands" in Los Gatos rejected the idea of annexation to the city. The votes occurred as part of Santa Clara County's program to bring such pockets inside municipal boundaries. Palo Alto: Voters narrowly rejected a plan to restrict demolition of older buildings listed on the city's new Historic Register. Ventura County Countywide: In the first countywide test of the SOAR initiative, voters overwhelmingly approved rezoning a few acres of agricultural land to permit a nursing home near Ojai to expand. Yolo County Davis: Voters decisively approved a SOAR-like measure that will require voter approval for rezoning of agricultural or open space land in the future.
