Support

The area residents who wrote the ballot argument in favor of Measure O said:

"One often experiences a sense of relief upon returning home to Wild Wings. Making that final turn off a busy highway into a serene setting of ponds, green fairways and tree lined streetscapes. It would be a shame if, on the other hand, our view was of dead weeds, a littered parking lot, deteriorating club house and more for-sale signs. Join your neighbors in taking control."

Opposition

The area residents who wrote the ballot argument against Measure O said:

"It forces us to subsidize a golf course that has lost money since it opened...As neighbors, we want to live in a congenial community that draws others to want to live here, increasing property values. Measure O limits us to just one option; a golf course. Let’s defeat Measure O and together as neighbors, consider all options with transparency and civility to create the best solution for our community."
