Measure E Baseline Analysis

City Council requested earlier this year 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.
