Need Help in San Benito County

Posted July 19, 2022

Local 1621 Members we need your help in the San Benito County to support the Strada Verde Project. There is a Ballot Measure coming out that a NIMBY group called PORC (Preserve our rural communities) qualified a ballot measure that would require all land use projects that would be developed on county land be brought forth for a vote amongst County voters. We’re the campaign against this measure. It’s bad for San Benito County because it would rob the county government of revenue that is necessary to run essential services. This could mean a roll back of services and other measures to mitigate the loss of funding. The economic consequences would hurt communities of color the most because of little to no economic growth meaning less job opportunities for residents. Finally, running an election to vote on land use issues every time is costly and would have the effect of killing most development in San Benito County.. 

Also it would kill the Strada Verde project. If the Ballot Measure passes, this $2.4 Billion project PLA goes away, so it is very relevant.

Please get involved your City Council meeting and get Active.

Thank you,
