“The Sierra Club and home builders don't often find themselves on the same side of development issues.”

“These extreme measures would restrict densities in Cupertino, impose inflexible ceilings on building heights and mandate buildings be set back from the street a certain distance regardless of their location. Even the slightest variations would require a public vote, which means they will not happen.”

“Is it any wonder these measures have drawn opposition, not only from builders and environmentalists, including the Greenbelt Alliance and League of Conservation Voters, but also from good-government advocates, the League of Women Voters and from every responsible leader and entity in Cupertino?”
