Prior to the last general election, the Friends of Livermore Committee (FOLC) circulated a petition to place a referendum on the ballot. The petition drive was successful, but the results were submitted too late to appear on the ballot.

The referendum proposed that several recent decisions regarding the downtown development be rescinded. The referendum specified that the proposals either be put to a vote of the electorate or that the City Council vote to accept the terms of the referendum.
