What is “urban development”?

Measure W states that urban development will not be allowed beyond the Urban Growth Boundary, meaning development requiring one or more basic municipal services. Certain exceptions regarding water service are provided. Like the current rules, Measure W allows public parks, schools, agricultural and open space uses served by municipal services to be located outside the UGB.  Measure W also allows the UGB to be enlarged to accommodate development of affordable housing, within certain limits.  For details, view the City Attorney’s Impartial Analysis of Measure W and the Measure W Resolution.
