Measure A is a deceptive trick. Read its text in your voter pamphlet and you will see that its only effect is to irrevocably re-zone two residential parcels to commercial.

That simple fact has been wrapped by the proponents in an elaborate story about how it "preserves outdoor dining" and "allows discussion". It does neither. It just sets the stage for further commercialization of Woodside, worse traffic, and more asphalt. Woodside's most consistent and lifelong goal has been to preserve its urban character. Measure A does the opposite.
