A Merced County Voter Confirmation of Zoning Changes, Measure D
ballot proposition was on the November 2, 2010 ballot
in Merced County
It was defeated.
Measure D was put on the ballot by the County Board of Supervisors to create exemptions to Measure C.
Measure C was placed on the ballot via the initiative process and was originally known as the Save Farmland Initiative. It was regarded as a "slow growth" plan. It would have required a public vote whenever 10 or more acres change from agricultural or open space to residential use.
The Merced County Board of Supervisors voted to put a competing measure, Measure D, on the same ballot. If Measure D had been approved, it would have exempted 2,437 acres in the county from Measure C's provisions.
