There are two important measures on the ballot in San Jose this June election (June 5), Measure B and Measure C. Please join us in saying No to Measure B and Yes to Measure C.
What You Can Do
Measure B claims to be about affordable housing for seniors and veterans, but what it actually does is approve (without environmental review) a gated community of over 900 mostly luxury homes on open space near the East San Jose Foothills.
Measure C puts limits on residential sprawl of the sort proposed by Measure B. It ensures that developers who build housing out on the edge of the city near the open space of Coyote Valley and the foothills must comply with strong environmental requirements on “zero net energy” design and recycled water.
Why it Matters
Measure B would encourage citywide residential sprawl and would weaken existing affordable housing requirements. Measure B essentially paints a target on North Coyote Valley for residential sprawl. Measure C protects our environment and our communities by placing limits on residential sprawl.
Remember: B is for Billionaires; C is for Community. Vote No on B and Yes on C this June!
