Organizers of an anti-traffic initiative in Thousand Oaks aimed at blocking big-box retailers and other development Monday submitted the voter signatures necessary to qualify the measure as a special election item on the June ballot.
Backers of the proposed initiative collected more than 15,500 signatures. To qualify the measure for the June ballot, about 10,300 of the signatures must be verified.
The Right to Vote on Traffic Congestion Initiative would subject most projects of 75,000 square feet or more to a new traffic standard: If the project reduces the level of traffic flow to below a “C” level of service, then it automatically would go to a public vote.
