608 signatures to qualify Measure E for the city's ballot were turned in to city election officials on May 2, 2008.[1] The signatures were checked by Santa Barbara County clerks.

"Buellton Is Our Town" is the group behind Measure E. Containing urban sprawl is their primary goal.

Under the terms of the successful Measure E:

  • Voter approval is required for expansion outside the city limits or to develop sewer or water services outside the existing city limits.
  • The initiative amends the city's current General Plan.
  • The initiative will be in effect until December 31, 2025.
