John Murray, general Manag- er, told the audience that his company was excited about the opportunity envisioned in Clo- verdale. He gave a brief history of the corporation founded by Del Webb in 1929 in Fresno. The founder went on to be a contractor fo Madison Square Garden, the Pentagon and Dodgers Stadium, to name a few national land- marks. He was at one time part owner of the New York Yankees and was also a contractor for a num- ber of Las Vegas casinos. In the '70's Webb focused on his Sun cities for active adults. A more recent development is the Sun City in Roseville. Murray stated that most peo- ple retire in the area where they have lived and where their im- mediate families live. He noted that Sun Cities seek to preserve native trees and nat- ural growth and conventional construction methods are used. Homes can be customized to fit the individual buyer. The Cloverdale complex, if ap- proved by the City Council, will have from 350 to 400 homes. Tennis courts and an outdoor pool plus a fitness center are in the plan. The clubhouse will have two multi-function rooms and the home designs will be II I I I III I Voters pass Measure D On March 4 Cloverdale voters passed Measure D in support of the Cloverdale Fire District Spe- cial Tax. It's passage means ev- erything will stay status quo and most people will pay $88 a year for fire protection of their home. The measure was passed with 977 votes--71.8 in favor. 383 peo- ple or 28.2 percent voted against it. A total of 1,360 people voted. District Board member Janet Collins was pleased with the outcome. "I'm grateful to all of the people who worked so hard to be sure eall uns't] what was at stake--therefore we could make an informed decision at the polls and continue the level of service the community is used to. According to Measure D advo- cates, if it had not passed the district would have lost 75% of its revenue and three of the four paid firefighter positions would have been lost and staffing of the firehouse 24 hours a day, seven days a week would no longer have been possible. The replace- ment of aging equipment would also have been impossible, and insurance premiums would prob- ably have increased significant- ly.
