MEASURE U, CITY OF WATSONVILLE
In November 2002, 60% of Watsonville City voters approved Measure U. It established a twenty-year, twenty-five-year, and westerly urban limit lines around the City, and directed growth into several unincorporated areas—primarily the Buena Vista, Manabe-Burgstrom, and Atkinson Lane areas adjacent to the current City boundary. The Measure was designed to protect commercial agricultural lands and environmentally sensitive areas while providing a measure of surety to the City on its ability to address housing and job creation for the next 20 years.
