Weber property on agenda

Dear Editor:

After a year delay, the Weber property is back up for review by the Planning Commission. The public hearing is Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. in the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.

This is the 15-acre parcel that Lucille Weber had willed to the Salvation Army who in turn took her to court to take title of the property before she died. She is still living on her "life estate" that was part of the court settlement.

Davidon Homes is requesting a zoning change as well as a tree removal permit for this 22-home subdivision. The Town of Danville seems set to approve this project because they get a through street from Matadera Way to Blemer as well as drivable access into the back of Oak Hill Park. In their eagerness to have these two things, the town seems ready to ignore some major flood control issues with Green Valley Creek; the cumulative impact on the environment; and traffic concerns from the surrounding residents to name a few.

I encourage all residents of Danville to come to this meeting and see local government and concerned citizens at work.

Kristen Trisko, Danville
