The Need to Protect Sunnyvale Public Lands

Our community is experiencing increased pressure to reallocate and re-purpose our Sunnyvale public lands for non-public uses. We as residents are feeling it, as well as our city officials. It’s becoming more and more difficult for our representatives alone to hold back this onslaught. Our residents and elected representatives need a new tool, something to help our city officials stem the pressures to change the character of our community without good community discussion and the backing of direct voter approval.

This measure will allow the voters of the City of Sunnyvale to have a direct say by requiring a majority vote of Sunnyvale voters to approve the sale, lease, swap or transfer between the City and another party of city property that has been used as either 1) a public park, or 2) a community service amenity, which includes facilities and land whose primary purpose is to provide the public a place of city government administration, recreation, education, exercise, or enjoyment. The measure does NOT interfere with management of city services.
