Urban Limit Line Review


In 1990, Contra Costa County voters approved the Urban Limit Line (ULL), which limits urban development to certain areas of the County and helps to preserve farmland and open space. In 2006 County voters passed Measure L, which extended the term of the ULL through 2026 and required a 2016 review to determine whether enough capacity existed inside the ULL to accommodate jobs and housing growth through 2036.
