For Measure K
EDITOR: For the past 20 years, Sonoma County’s community separators have kept green buffers between our cities, freeing us from urban sprawl and strip malls that plague so many other areas in California. With a yes vote for Measure K in November, our community separators will be renewed for another 20 years.
The separators complement the urban growth boundaries around our cities to safeguard rural/agriculture landscapes in adjacent county lands. Let’s not risk losing more farmland and rural landscapes. Greenbelts preserve our economy, environment and public health.
Even better news is Measure K is a tax-free initiative, so there is no cost to taxpayers. A vote for Measure K in November will ensure land protections for our and future generations. It will also help keep Sonoma County the beautiful place we so enjoy.
