2016 - 2016
In early 2016, the Political Action Committee Better Cupertino submitted a ballot initiative that sought to secure Vallco as a retail-only site and would have blocked any viable project at the site. The proposed redevelopment project was forced to the the ballot. The two competing ballot measures swept the city in November 2016. Both were rejected by the voters. Following that election, Sand Hill shared with the community that, until there was no certainty and stability in Cupertino, the company could not further invest in the site.
