A City of Loma Linda Open Space Initiative, Measure T ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of Loma Linda in San Bernardino County, where it was approved.

Measure T mandated that about 1,675 acres of land owned by the City of Loma Linda in the South Hills area be permanently preserved for open space and recreational uses.

Measure T was approved to appear on the ballot by Loma Linda's city council. Not everyone on the council favored the measure and some thought it was rushed onto the ballot to circumvent the forthcoming choices of Loma Linda's new mayor, Ovidiu Popescu, who some characterized as being a "growth-control opponent."[1]
