Voters in San Diego and San Benito counties overwhelmingly rejected growth-control general plan amendments. In El Dorado County, voters said no to approving an entire general plan via initiative.Elsewhere, Contra Costa County voters overturned a county ordinance that attempted to block Wal-Mart supercenters. In the city of San Marcos, however, the electorate reversed the City Council’s approval of a second Wal-Mart store for the north San Diego County town. In Napa County, voters rejected a controversial stream-setback ordinance approved by county supervisors, and voters said no to a more stringent setback initiative backed by environmentalists.
