Three Proposed City of Rossmoor Incorporation and Utility Tax ballot questions, Measures U-A, U-B and U-C, were on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the proposed City of Rossmoor in Orange County, California. All three measures were defeated.[1]

Voters were asked to consider three separate questions.

  • Question U-A was about whether to incorporate Rossmoor into a city.
  • Question U-B was about whether to impose a utility users tax of 7% on the inhabitants of the proposed City of Rossmoor, if Measure U-A been approved and Rossmoor had become a city.
  • Question U-C was about whether to impose a utility users tax of 9% on the inhabitants of the proposed City of Rossmoor, if Measure U-A been approved and Rossmoor had become a city.

Because Measure U-A was defeated, the area known as Rossmoor continues as a census-designated place, rather than as its own self-governing jurisdiction.
