Alliance for a Better Brentwood gathered at Rubiano's to await election results on Measure L in Brentwood, Calif., Tuesday, Nov. 5. The measure, which would have expanded the city's urban limit line and allowed the development of up to 2,400 homes on an 800-acre parcel, was firmly defeated as 71% of the 12,000 votes cast were against the measure. 

Brentwood’s Measure L, a developer-backed initiative to move the city’s urban limit line to accommodate a 815-acre project of up to 2,400 residential units north of Balfour Road, appears to be defeated, according to the Contra Costa County Election Division’s unofficial final results.

An estimated 71.03% (8,661 votes) rejected the proposal, while 28.84% (3,517 votes) approved it.

County elections officials said Wednesday they expect the results to be certified within 30 days.
