Calistoga Silver Rose Referendum, Measure B (November 2012)
Measure B was about an ordinance (Ordinance 681) that was approved by the Calistoga City Council in May 2012. That ordinance amended the city's overall zoning ordinance to allow the development of the Silver Rose project at 400 Silverado Trail.
Voters in Calistoga who objected to that proposed development then collected signatures on petitions to place the ordinance on the November 6, 2012, ballot. If voters said "yes," they were agreeing with the city council; this will allow the development to proceed. If voters said "no," they were disagreeing with the city council. A defeat would have prevented the development from going forward.

In a letter to the editor of the Weekly Calistogan, resident Sanna Craig stated, "A good first step is for our City Council to cooperate with our Planning Commission and concerned citizens on General Plan guidelines for land use, community character and open space. A “no” vote on Measure B would give Calistoga an eleventh-hour chance at a win-win solution for all."
