THE BHNA MEMBERSHIP VOTED TO ENDORSE MEASURE Y!  Members were informed about Measure Y and its opposition measure, the developers’ Measure R, and were given two voting options to let the Board know if they wished to endorse Measure Y.  In August, our mail-in proxy vote began, and at our September Zoom meeting, members were able to participate in our on-line poll.

The results are in and our membership voted overwhelmingly to endorse the residents’ grassroots measure, Measure Y!  While developers have put more than $1 million into their campaign, our members stayed focused on the facts, which can be found on www.SmarterGrowthSM.com.
