Title SBCAG APPROVES MEASURE D RENEWAL PLAN
 
Subtitle
 
Description Thursday, April 20 2006
Santa Barbara
The Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) approved today by a 12-0-1 vote (Solvang abstained) an ambitious expenditure plan to extend for 30 years the current Measure D sales tax for transportation purposes set
to expire in 2010. Agreement on this plan represents a historic moment for SBCAG, capping a contentious and divisive process that pitted road maintenance against transit needs; South Coast against North County; local control versus regional projects; and freeway widening against commuter rail. When the dust settled, the Board emerged unified and most of the attending public erupted in cheers.
