City of Riverside Commission on Sustainability, Measure F (June 2012)
If Measure H had been approved, the city's charter would have called for the creation of a Commission on Sustainability. This Commission would have "advise[d] the Mayor and City Council on matters of sustainability as it pertains to environmental stewardship, economic development, and regional advantages as a means of pursuing a higher quality of life."
A simple majority was required for approval.
- These final results are from the Riverside County elections office.
The editorial board of the Press Enterprise opposed Measure F. They wrote, "No. Riverside does not need to write a Commission on Sustainability into the charter."
The question on the ballot:
|MEASURE F: "Shall the Charter of the City of Riverside be amended by adding a new section 811, entitled "Commission on Sustainability," which would create a new commission to advise the Mayor and City Council on matters of sustainability as it pertains to environmental stewardship, economic development, and regional advantages as a means of pursuing a higher quality of life, with the powers and duties of that commission set by ordinance of the City Council?"|
