City of Saratoga Building Heights Limit, Measure Q (November 2010)
Supporters of Measure Q say:
- "In April, 2010, the City approved Ordinance #277, removing the 2-story height restriction on commercial buildings that had been in place for the 50+ year history of Saratoga!
- Very Few Saratogans knew this was happening.
- YES Measure Q will restore Saratoga’s history 2 story commercial height limit.
Jeff Schwartz, a leader in the "Yes on Q" campaign, says, "This is an issue about the future of the community."
The campaign for a "no" vote on Measure Q had raised about $36,000 for their campaign through mid-October. The California Association of Realtors contributed about $25,000 of that total.
The question on the ballot:
|Measure Q: Shall the City of Saratoga adopt an ordinance setting a two-story limit for buildings on land in Commercial and Professional and Administrative Office zoning districts in the City and requiring voter approval of any future change to the two-story limit on those lands?|
