Measure E Ordinance
Passed by voters in 1996, Measure E requires voter approval for any amendment to the Land Use Element of the City’s General Plan that:
- increases residential land use density beyond the City’s General Plan of November 5, 1996 or
- increases the amount of commercial acreage beyond the City’s General Plan of November 5, 1996
Measure E Baseline Analysis
In 2016, City Council requested a comprehensive analysis of the residential baseline that existed when Measure E was approved by voters in 1996. Council received and reviewed the analysis at its October 24, 2017, meeting. You can find this and additional information on density and development history in the links below.
