Vote Yes for Measure R & Protect Our Parks & Open Space


Please help us get out the vote and tell your family and friends to VOTE YES for Measure R. Should Measure R pass, the city of Santa Clara would be unable to sell public parkland or open space without voter approval. The initiative would shift the responsibility for city-owned property sales and land-use changes from the Santa Clara City Council to the public. Under Measure R, any applicable land transactions would require two-thirds voter approval.
