Too close to call! Yes and no on Carpinteria's Measure T land use measure just eight votes apart
With some ballots still in the mail, it could be days before the issue is decided.
It's too close to call. The unofficial results as of Wednesday morning show just eight votes separate the yes and no vote on Carpinteria's Measure T, with the proposal leaning slightly towards defeat.
Measure T is called the “Parcel Rezoning Initiative” and is centered around a proposal to build a hotel in Carpinteria’s downtown area. Opponents put Measure T on the ballot, which would rezone the area to permanently block a project of this type.
The numbers show a 50.14% no vote, to 49.86% yes. But, some mail-in ballots have yet to be counted, and that's expected to take days.
