Rocklin, CA – The Rocklin Alliance for Open Space, a coalition of civic leaders, community members and local elected officials, kicked-off the Yes on Measure H campaign today at their headquarters in Rocklin.
Measure H will appear on the February ballot.
‘Measure H is the optimal solution for protecting Clover Valley against urban sprawl while respecting property rights,’ said Rocklin Mayor Brett Storey. ‘This agreement is the result of years of hard work, and we believe residents of Rocklin understand that the best way to protect Clover Valley while creating more open space and reducing traffic congestion without new taxes is to vote yes on Measure H.’
The growing list of supporters of Measure H includes Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt, Rocklin Mayor Brett Storey, former Rocklin Mayor Kathy Lund, Rocklin City Councilmember Peter Hill, Rocklin City Councilmember Scott Yuill, Rocklin Parks & Recreation Commission Chair Margaret Azevedo, Rocklin Firefighters Association President Jason Shearer, Rocklin Police Officers Association President Bart Paduveras, Rocklin Taxpayers for Sensitive Planning Co-Founder Chad Stout and Rocklin Chamber of Commerce Board Member David Butler.
‘We are fortunate that the owners of Clover Valley listened to community concerns and worked with the City of Rocklin,’ said Placer County Supervisor Robert Weygandt. ‘Measure H guarantees that 60% of Clover Valley will be preserved as permanent open space; a 552% increase over earlier proposals.’
‘Measure H will reduce traffic congestion with a two-lane road connecting Park Drive and Sierra College Boulevard, providing shorter commute routes and cutting emergency response time in half,’ said Tom Cosgrove, planning commissioner for Placer County Transportation.
Without Measure H, the owners of Clover Valley have the right to build twice as many homes on the land and provide five times less open space that Measure H agrees to.
‘Measure H will create a 5-acre park and over two miles of hiking and biking trails in Clover Valley and guarantees that the number of trees including Majestic Oaks will not be reduced,’ said Christine Anderson, member of the Rocklin Parks and Recreation Commission. ‘It also protects Native American sacred sites and wildlife habits.’
As part of the agreement, a new fire station will also be constructed for the city of Rocklin.
