"Voters in two Solano County (CA) cities on the edge of the Bay Area approved urban growth boundaries during the November 4 election, providing two major victories for slow-growth advocates... Fairfield voters backed an urban limit line that blocks development around Travis Air Force Base and in a portion of Green Valley, north of the Interstate 80/680 junction. Meanwhile, nearly 70% voters in Benicia backed an urban growth boundary initiative that blocks development for 20 years in a hilly area northeast of town know as Sky Valley. Benicia voters also rejected a City Council-sponsored growth boundary alternative."
