Hollister Urban Growth Boundary and Democracy Initiative

The purpose of this Hollister Urban Growth Boundary and Democracy Initiative is to amend the City of Hollister General Plan to establish a long-term Urban Growth Boundary (“UGB”). The UGB is a boundary line beyond which urban development will not be allowed, except for certain public facilities and in other limited circumstances. Only specified agricultural and open space land uses are permitted outside the UGB. With certain limited exceptions where the City makes a specific set of findings, this UGB may not be amended until December 31, 2049, except by a vote of the people of the City of Hollister at an election held in accordance with State law.

This initiative was submitted to the Hollister City Clerk's Office by members of Preserve Our Rural Communities on March 2, 2020.)
