Election 2018: Napa County Measure C Shows Fight Between Preservation and Development


KQED Forum moderated by Mina Kim, May 11, 2018

Napa County Measure C would strengthen protections for oak woodland and water resources against development. Proponents say that the measure is critical to preventing deforestation, protecting watersheds and curbing over-development. Opponents argue that the legislation is too vague, not based on evidence and will hurt Napa’s agricultural community. We’ll talk to stakeholders on both side of the measure and discuss how it encompasses Napa County’s struggle to balance preservation and growth.
