> "In a letter sent to the city today, contract attorney Greg Stepanicich said that while Measure M wouldn't require voter approval for all changes to the specific plan, it would in this case because the measure doesn't distinguish between different types of office space; and, Section 3.3.5 of the initiative sets the maximum amount of office space of any individual project at 100,000 square feet.
>
>
> "Further, Section 4.1 of Measure M states that any amendments to the voter adopted development standards and definitions require voter approval, not just amendments that impose less stringent development standards," Mr. Stepanicich wrote.”
>
>
> This is a critical point because it makes clear than none of the ten definitions in Measure M or any of the Measure M limits can be changed in any way without a city wide vote - even changes to make the Specific plan MORE stringent.
