Original post made on Sep 11, 2009

Danville, San Ramon and Contra Costa County will be sitting down and examining the eastern boundary between the two towns in an effort to determine just where each municipality's sphere of influence ends.

I have been hearing rumors about this for some time also. Where can I can get more information about this? Such changes would certainly impact me and I would like to raise my voice and get my neighbors be aware of this as I think we want to be part of Danville.

Sure, if you think you'll get excellent service from the non-existent Danville "town" government, go ahead. When we lived on Lawrence Road, the only time we saw the police or public works was if we called them. Other than that, there was no preventative maintenance and no regular patrols. Best of luck to you.

The Tassajara Valley is the planned future home of the New Farm Development. The New Farm Development is planned to have 500 low income houses, built and maintained with our tax dollars. The low income housing is specifically aimed at housing three THOUSAND illegal immigrants, possibly more.

Being that Danville is perceived by the county leaders to be a conservative bastion, they foresee potential problems from us, and wish to circumvent said problems by stealing our land away to San Ramon, so that they may give the land to illegals.

PLEASE!!! ASK YOUR LOCAL AND COUNTY LEADERS!!! YOU WILL BE SHOCKED AT WHAT YOU HEAR!!!

"By stealing our land away to San Ramon, so that they may give the land to illegals"

It isn't Danville's land. It's unincorporated and outside either town's sphere of influence currently. That is what the article was about. I guess the person you hired to read the big words to you may have messed that part up.

"The New Farm Development is planned to have 500 low income houses, built and maintained with our tax dollars. The low income housing is specifically aimed at housing three THOUSAND illegal immigrants, possibly more."

Interesting, since the plan submitted to the county only has 186 total units in the development. With only 33 of those as low-moderate income. And only a small percentage of those being rental units for the farm workers. This as reported both by the county, the times and the danville weekly. Please, enlighten us with the wisdom of where your alleged information comes from.

Once again, broad stroke b.s. with no factual content, no provable information. If you truly have some sort of inside track, then give up some sort of actual facts. Not your beliefs, not your 'inside sources'. Real provable facts. Post a weblink, give a name of a county staff member or a person who can actually corroborate what you are saying. In the absence of anything like that, you continue to be just so much wasted pixels on those blog.

Oh my God! This guy is so naive. Listen people, if there's one thing politicians love to do, it's mislead about how bad something's gonna be. Anyway, yes, the facade put out there is 186 homes, but the devil is in the details. The manner in which this development will be developed, it leaves an incredible loophole to build hundreds more houses, largely low income. Ask your local and county leaders if there will be more houses. Ask them when is the soonest that this further development can take place. They can mislead, as they've already done, but they can't outright lie without severe ramifications. You'll be amazed at what you hear.

Think about it, it is not the liars who wish people to do their own research. It is the liars who are afraid of the people doing their own research. If I were a liar, I would not want people finding out the truth on their own, without my own spin. But, in fact, I'm not afraid of what they'll discover because I know I'm telling the truth.

Good point about the liars Rick. Why don't you go to the San Ramon website and look up their General Plan. Go to page 1-14 and read about the voter review in 2010 for yourself. Since the plan was done by residents and the politicians were excluded I'm sure you will find it easier to believe what you read. Measure G section 5 in the appendix of that document explains the city council and the planning commissions sole responsibility in this document. You might even look a little further about what it would take for San Ramon to develop out in Tasajara. Can't do it without a vote. Now look up Danville and the county. Devils in the details Rick.
