Why is there flooding and erosion in Danville? Because OVERDEVELOPMENT IS CAUSING FLOODING AND EROSION!!
Now Danville is considering the approval of YET ANOTHER DEVELOPMENT that will add to flooding and erosion along Green Valley Creek in the Diablo Road corridor. SUMMERHILL HOMES is seeking to build 123 or more dwellings that will cover many dozens of acres of open agricultural land with impermeable surfaces. What does that mean to the hundreds of homeowners in the Diablo Road corridor that live along Green Valley Creek? EROSION WILL GREATLY INCREASE (because of the higher than normal waterflows that will flow for many hours from SummerHill's detention basin) and FLOODING WILL INCREASE because the detention basin will undoubtedly OVERFLOW from time to time because it is insufficient to handle flows or it is poorly maintained.
Please email Danville Council Members and Planning Commissioners (see Town of Danville website for email addresses) and tell them Danville can SAVE MONEY ON SANDBAGS by VOTING NO ON SUMMERHILL!!
