Revision as of 10:12, 24 April 2010

A Gold Rush Ranch and Golf Resort referendum may be on a 2010 ballot in the City of Sutter Creek in Amador County.[1]

The ballot proposition will allow voters to weigh in on a January 2010 decision of the Sutter Creek City Council that gave the green light to the proposed Gold Rush Ranch and Golf Resort subdivision project.

Sutter Creek City Resolution Number 09-10-16, enacted in January, approved the specific plan and general plan amendments of the Gold Rush Ranch project. Voters will have their say about that and one outcome of the election could be that the city's approval of the specific plan and general plan amendments will be overturned. The city council would also be unable, by state law, to enact similar legislation for a period of one year after the vote.[1]

Members of the Preserve Historic Sutter Creek group collected 468 signatures to qualify the measure for the ballot. These signatures were given to election authorities on February 1, 2010.

Path to the ballot

Election officials have 30 calendar days from February 1 to determine whether at least 158 signatures collected by Preserve Historic Sutter Creek are valid. There are 1,584 registered voters in Sutter Creek, and 10% of them must have signed the petition for the measure to qualify for the ballot.[1]
