Measure T Passed: Protecting Antioch’s Urban Limit Line

Finally, after years of grassroots organizing (see instrumental wins from previous years that led to this major victory), Greenbelt Alliance worked with Antioch voters to pass Measure T in 2020 with 79 percent approval to protect 1,200 acres in the Sand Creek Area.

The newly protected lands are located at the southern edge of Antioch, in the foothills of Mount Diablo. Known for its majestic rolling hills and open expanses, the area provides a host of natural benefits, including critical wildlife habitat, recharge of groundwater supplies, carbon sequestration, and well-loved walking routes and scenic vistas. The measure requires a vote of the people to expand growth beyond the Urban Limit Line—the boundary that marks the outer limit beyond which urban development isn’t allowed.
