Petaluma Urban Growth Boundary Extension, Measure T (November 2010)
The decision to vote on the ballot proposition was made unanimously by the Petaluma City Council.
The question in front of voters was whether to extend the life of the urban growth boundary restrictions that voters approved in 1998 for a 20-year-span. Those limits would have expired in 2018 if voters had not approved Measure T, which extends the urban growth boundary limits to 2025 instead of to 2018.
Urban growth boundaries, such as the boundary currently in effect in Petaluma, set a geographical boundary on expansion, including on where city services such as water and sewer can be installed.
These results are from the Sonoma County elections division as of November 28, 2010.
