Measure M PlanKnown as M2, the Renewed Measure M was approved by Orange County voters in November 2006. It includes $11.8 billion in transportation improvements for the Orange County Transportation Authority (OCTA) – from freeway expansions to light synchronization to Metrolink.

Ultimately there were three components relating to the environment that conservation and community groups supported: environmental clean up, context sensitive design, and programmatic mitigation.
