October 25, 2016 (San Diego's East County)-- Measure B on the countywide ballot was paid for by a developer. Accretive Development wants voters to approve Lilac Hills, a massive, master-planned community the size of Del Mar in rural Valley Center.
Why should voters in East County and elsewhere in San Diego care? First, because taxpayers countywide could wind up footing part of the bill and second, because if Measure B passes, developers of other controversial projects could similarly seek to bypass state enviornmental review and the county plannning process. That's why major environmental groups such as Sierra Club, Save Our Forests and Ranchlands, and Cleveland Natoinal Forest Foundation are all opposed to the ballot proposition.
