I do not believe the area will benefit from this project. Mr Gecko meets Borat- greed is good, Not.

The land was zoned with the intent to preserve the beauty of the area. The potential effect to the area, wild life and traffic is alarming. Unite against this atrocity.

When our city officials and council members show a clear pattern of working for the interests of developers, and against the wishes of Danville residents, it is time to replace or recall them.
If I were a gambler, I would bet that this project eventually gets pushed through, even if in a slightly watered-down version. Because the ultra-wealthy always prevail.

San Ramon tried to preserve this area in the recent election but somehow the voters trusted the county (broke) more than San Ramon (doing OK).

Follow the money...

Has anyone asked if this new devlopment will push Magee Ranch from Monte Vista H.S. to Dougherty Valley H.S.? Magee is on the boundry egde so will adding more homes push Magee to DV?

With Green Valley Elementary at capacity (or full) in many grades, the school board will have to take a serious look at diverting students from many neighborhoods like Magee Ranch and Hidden Oaks to schools along Camino Tassajara. What do you think that'll do to property values in those neighborhoods?
