Vote against Measure D

Throughout the history of human civilization, our species has never been able to achieve the strict discipline required for successful self regulation. Time and again we have proven that without law and order (regulation), there is chaos.

Now with Measure D on the Nevada County November ballot, voters are being asked by developers and would-be property developers to support their position to deregulate or compensate. Trust us, they say. Don’t judge us by our past performance. We are no longer interested in maximizing profit margins.

Measure D is brought to you by the same unregulated billboard mentality responsible for the ticky-tacky development that scars the visual corridor of Highway 49 north of Interstate 80. It doesn’t take a degree in advanced engineering to connect the dots between the property owners along Highway 49 with their “No on NH2020” billboards and proponents of Measure D.

Don’t be fooled. Measure D is so poorly written and open to interpretation that the only winners here are litigating attorneys and the big, well- heeled developers who can afford their fees. And who pays for the county’s legal fees? You do, through your taxes.

The “D” in Measure D is for disaster. The passage of this measure has the potential to eliminate the planning process in the county’s development and forever change the character of Nevada County.

Get the facts. Protect your property value and envied quality of life.

Vote “no” on Measure D.
