Maybe they should concentrate on building more schools.
Look, Listen and Understand the situation folks. This is a great example of total incompetence.
Think about it...don't allow them to hide the truth...
They all do it and you naive people allow it to happen.
Thank you for listening, Julia Pardini form beautiful Alamo
Wake up people, these type of thing are happening everyday and you just allow it. Shame on you
This is scary, and maybe an indication of why the developers have targeted our town to fill with houses on tiny lots. The schools are so overcrowded, and the City of San Ramon wants to fill another parcel of land with 700+ homes. The San Ramon Valley Unified School District cannot keep pace with the City of San Ramon's aggressive development of every open acreage. That is the real problem--why is the City allowing overdevelopment without adequate school growth??? And is looking to build out more land??? The schools that would serve the newer development are not adequate to educate another thousand students...Our school district is one step behind, and why?
We live in Danville C.P. but I've made the same point many times on these boards.
Residents of the 680 corridor need to make it clear to the developers that we will not accept more of their nasty cracker boxes until they cough up the full cost of new schools. Talk about corporate welfare - why should I subsidize some wealthy developer who only pays a small fraction of the cost of primary, middle, and high school construction?
And at the same time, we must let the council members, mayors, and city planners know that they will be voted out if they let the developers pay any less than the full share of their impacts. Enough of this sprawl. The Toll Brothers in Dublin alone have built stack & pack's to fill half a dozen schools easily.
Even if Shapell, KB, Toll Bro's, and all the others were willing to pay the entire costs of their impacts, including now infrastructure, how much more population can this narrow valley hold? How much more open space is going to be converted to residential at the whims of local politicians?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
