Greenbelt Alliance is sponsoring three free public events in Rohnert Park to educate voters about renewing the city’s Urban Growth Boundary (UGB) with Measure B on the November 5, 2019 election ballot.

Rohnert Park voters established an urban growth boundary (UGB) in 2000 with a 71% “yes” vote.. The City of Rohnert Park will hold a special election on Nov. 5, 2019, to renew the UGB by voting Yes on Measure B. The measure is endorsed by Greenbelt Alliance, Sierra Club, Sonoma County Democratic Party, Rohnert Park Democratic Club.
The UGB is a line around the city that contains development. It protects surrounding open space and farmland from unhealthy sprawl. It has safeguarded Rohnert Park for 20 years and needs to be renewed by the voters to avoid a lapse in protection.
