MORE ABOUT YES ON MEASURE W AND RENEWING THE URBAN GROWTH BOUNDARY
What’s a UGB? Sonoma’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) is a line beyond which its city border cannot extend and development cannot occur without majority voter approval by its citizens, except in particular and well-defined cases, including for 100 percent affordable housing.When? Sonoma’s current UGB was placed on the ballot through the initiative process, approved by 64% of its voters in 1999, and went into effect in 2000 for a period of twenty years. Now that it is expiring, we the voters can renew it by voting Yes on Measure W in the November 3, 2020 General Election.What if? If the voter protections for the City of Sonoma’s UGB are not renewed in 2020, its boundary can be modified by the vote of a simple majority on the City Council at any time. This would put the future of Sonoma on the ballot in every City Council election, every two years.
