City of Oxnard Traffic Initiative, Measure V (November 2008)
The measure was defeated with 38.37% of the vote.
Measure V was a citizen initiative.
The Oxnard Traffic Initiative states that all intersections within a five-mile radius of a proposed development must be fixed before a project can be approved. If the intersections are not fixed and the City of Oxnard still wishes to proceed with the project, then the proposed development would have to be submitted to the voters for approval.
