Davidon Homes gets go-ahead from town council

Developers might break ground of Weber property this summer

On Tuesday night, the Danville Town Council unanimously approved preliminary development plans Davidon Homes, which rezoned a 15-acre site at 333 Hill Road from a single-family residential district to a planned unit development district.

"They have everything they need in the way of entitlements from the town," said Town Manager Joe Calabrigo, who added that that Davidon Homes will now have to secure a grading permit to begin construction.

The project calls for the construction of 22 single-family homes and one life estate parcel as well as a new vehicular connection between Blemer Road and Matadera Way to alleviate congestion between Los Cerros Middle and Green Valley Elementary schools. At a July 5 public hearing, the council requested that planners add an additional sidewalk to the east side of Matadera Way.

As a formality, Tuesday's meeting was the second reading of the ordinance that was introduced on July 5. Ordinances put before the council must be put on the agenda twice -- once as an introduction and a motion to approve, then as a re-reading before adoption two weeks later -- and are subject to public hearings.

Davidon Homes is now working with the town to secure building permits for individual homes as well as grading permits, said Principal Planner David Crompton, adding that Davidon plans to begin construction this summer.

Associates at Davidon did not return calls for comment.

"They have everything they need in the way of entitlements from the town"
Uh, yeah.... I could not have put it better myself, Chainsaw Joe.

Jessica- and let me preface this by saying I mean no sarcasm (surprising for me, I know) and have no rhetorical intent:
Can you please give us an article, even if it's from ten years back, where our town council has NOT approved a project? You know, a construction site so inappropriate (pot clubs don't count) that it just would not fly? I put the challenge to you. And I am betting that you cannot do it.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
