This map shows nothing.
Where is this location at?
What are the main roads into and out of it in accessing freeways (sorry, highways)?
What school will it use?
How come not one informs the Public (that is farther away than a couple of blocks, but will still be impacted by it) and asks for their opinions.
I never receive anything in the Mail about so many projects that will eventually impact upon Danville traffic.
If they had affordable housing in "Beverly Hills", would it still be Beverly Hills?
If we have affordable housing in SR and Danville...................
Shouldn't the "market" dictate what type of properties get build?
Isn't this a Free Enterprise and Capitalistic system?
Ya' gotta love the name Faria PRESERVE.
Sort of like "military intelligence".
If we allow anyone to build anything wherever they want, will it still be Danville or San Ramon -- or something more like Houston, where you can build a strip club next to a school next to a refinery next to a group of houses next to a liquor store next to a church, etc.?
Dave (Lover of Big Government),
So, rather than have a Builder use their own economic common sense, you would rather have your Government FORCE the Builder to build strip clubs, refineries, schools, liquor stores, and churches in Danville and San Ramon. (And Affordable (Welfare) Housing.) Make it the job and decision of Government to decide what gets built and where.
Whereas I think that a Builder, who pays Danville prices for land, is going to build something that justifies that high cost and brings in a worthwhile profit.
Think of it this way, a Builder who builds a liquor store in the middle of an expensive residential neighborhood must know that there will be a high profit (that the Liquor Store will be highly desirable).........or that Builder will go BUST shortly (and the property can then be re-developed according to another Developer's concept).
Let the free market system work.....and keep government out of private industry!
YOU just want to FORCE your ideas about "how society should be" on others! Like YOU know best!?!
Is there a flaw in the logic (ABAG's religious belief in) of "affordable housing"?
Why shouldn't there be an area of high priced, large housing without ANY "affordable housing."
Why does everything have to be "equal"?
Are YOU being equal? Why don't YOU have a Nuclear Power Plant in your backyard?
It's called "zoning." It's the way in which a community decides what type of town or city it wants to have.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
