An initiative to Freeze Zoning in Churn Creek Bottom is on the June 5, 2012 ballot in Shasta County.[1]

In August 2011, the Shasta County Board of Supervisors gave the go-ahead for a commercial development on Knighton Road in Churn Creek Bottom.[2] The motivation to put the zoning freeze on the June 5, 2012 ballot sprang from that decision.[1]

Proposed development

The proposed shopping center development would go on what is currently a 92-acre empty lot and would be known as "Churn Creek Commons".[2]

Path to the ballot

The initiative is on the ballot because county residents who want zoning frozen in Churn Creek Bottom collected over 11,000 signatures on petitions to force a vote on the development.[1]

The same residents also qualified a veto referendum, the Referendum on Knighton Road Development in Churn Creek Bottom, for the June 5, 2012 ballot.
