Weber property development gets go-ahead

Original post made on Apr 28, 2009

The years-long battle over the final disposition of the 15-acre Weber property has come to an end, with members of the Danville Town Council giving the proposed development a green light. The proposal, from Davidon Homes, is for 22 single family homes on the parcel located on Hill Road between Blemer Road and Matadera Way.

Dear Dolores,

A neighbor asked today in regional e-exchanges, "Is there any reason not to call it Damnville? If we are to survive this government, we shall need more than the Devil's advocate..we will need several damn good attorneys!"

Interesting point for readers' discussion,

Hal, as a community courtesy

Of course, more money for Danville.

Americh has his eye on a larger prize... cultivating deep-pocket contributors now is an excellent part of his exit strategy.

I thought Lucille Webber sold it to the Boy Scouts originally ????
She asked that her horse be allowed to graze on the land until it Died or something.

Where did the Salvation Army come from?

Lucille Weber wanted her land to be "open space" When the Salvation Army found out that they were listed as the beneficiary of her estate, they took her to court. They ended up with Lucille's property which they promptly sold to Davidon Homes even though the Compromise Agreement said "upon the death of Lucille" the smaller parcel could be sold.

Lucille gets a stipend from Salvation Army. However, since she is paying the property taxes how is this all going to work out?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
