More than two-thirds against Measure D in early results

Measure D appeared to be failing soon after the polls closed Tuesday night, with 68% of voters opposing it.

As of 8:20pm, 15,704 of the 22,966 votes counted were against the measure.

Also called the “Santa Cruz County Greenway Initiative,” this measure would change the county’s General Plan to include the development of a multi-use bicycle and pedestrian trail between the San Lorenzo Bridge in Santa Cruz and Lee Road in Watsonville, and remove language that mandates building and maintaining the rail line running the length of the county.

It would also include the removal of the existing rail tracks, and possibly “railbanking” the existing rail line for future use. That, however, is not a guarantee, since such a move would be a decision for the Santa Cruz County Regional Transportation Commission and the federal government.
