A City of Alameda Sale or Disposal of City Parks, Measure D ballot question is on the November 6, 2012 ballot for voters in the City of Alameda in Alameda County.

The City of Alameda is a charter city. Its charter requires voter approval for any "sale or alienation of any public parks or portion of public parks within the City." This provision has three exceptions that allow the city council to do the following three things without first seeking voter approval:

  1. Lease or grant concessions or privileges in public parks.
  2. Grant permits, licenses or easements for street, utility or other purposes in public parks.
  3. "Sell or dispose of all or any portion of a public park as long as the City Council determines, after a public hearing or hearings, that the park will be replaced by another park of comparable size and utility which serves the same area with substantially the same amenities and improvements."

If Measure D is approved, the third exception will be eliminated. This means that the city council would no longer have the authority to sell or dispose of park land without voter approval, even if the park land would be replaced by comparable park land elsewhere in the city.

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Measure D: "Shall the Charter of the City of Alameda be amended by amending Section 22-12 to eliminate language that allows the City Council to sell or dispose of public parks or any portion thereof if a new public park is designated, which means the sale or disposal of public parks must be approved by the electors?"[1]
