Greenbelt Alliance’s Leadership Circle gathered for a post-election conversation with John King of the San Francisco Chronicle to discuss the 27 local ballot measures Greenbelt Alliance took positions on in the 2016 Bay Area elections.
- Sprawl is still a big issue in the Bay Area. Contra Costa County is an example where open spaces threatened by development have increased by over a third since 2012.
- When building a support base to win local campaigns, it’s important to meet voters where they are.
- Greenbelt Alliance works to ensure development happens in the right places and will evolve by approaching each new challenge holistically.
