Measure E will ensure that Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District can protect open space at Palo Corona and other properties for future generations to enjoy. (Photo: Burkhard Seidhoff).
Measure E will protect our area's incredible beaches, rivers, coastal areas, open space and wildlife habitat for future generations.
This measure renews vital open space funding to protect beaches, parks, wildlife habitat and natural areas in Seaside, Marina, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and throughout the Carmel Valley and Big Sur Coast.
We owe it to our children and grandchildren to vote YES to protect and preserve these natural areas so that future generations can experience nature the same way we do. Local open space funding supports playgrounds and educational programs to promote children's physical health and well-being, more important than ever in today's digital age.

Map of an exciting new route to connect Marina, CSUMB and the Beach that Measure X has planned for Monterey County. (Map by Dr. Fred Watson).
Measure X will improve the transportation system for Monterey County while protecting the environment and the quality of life we enjoy here. The ballot measure provides funding for increased active transportation such as walking and biking, and does not support building any new roadways.
Measure X also provides specific funding for the Fort Ord Regional Trail and Greenway, a 30 mile regional trail that will provide travel routes that connect communities’ centers by way of the vistas and scenery of the former Fort Ord lands.
Precious agricultural land, water supplies and tourism are currently threatened by dangerous oil extraction methods and need the protection of Measure Z. (Photo: Steve Zmak).
Measure Z bans fracking, acidizing and wastewater injection in Monterey County, which is the 4th largest oil producing county in California. The oil is dirtier (more carbon intensive) than the Alberta tar sands.
Oil companies are now injecting toxic wastewater into protected aquifers, violating the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. This endangers the water supply of Salinas Valley’s farms and cities (which are majority Latino).
The oil industry is spending millions on TV, radio and internet ads to oppose Measure Z because they know that it will shift the direction of California's policies on energy and underground injection. For more information, or to donate, see http://www.protectmontereycounty.org.
