Yes, Bebe, what ARE they thinking? Apparently, the Town Council in Danville turns a deaf ear to the public and its rights.
That is why SOS-Danville is now in a lawsuit against the Town for its flawed approval of the SummerHill Homes 69+ home development for Magee Ranch in the Diablo Road corridor. SOS-Danville's suit includes a demand for a Measure S public vote on the project because it converts land designated in the Danville General Plan for Agricultural use to a Residential use. Danville claims the land where the homes are clustered on 10,000+ sq. foot lots is still in Agricultural use!
BTW, Measure S was a ballot measure in 2000 that passed with a whopping 75% approval. It says that when the Council votes to change a parcel designated for Agricultural use to another use, such as Residential, the public gets the final say via a public ballot measure election.
The KB Homes Elworthy Ranch project ("Quail Ridge") should have also had a Measure S public vote. The Council claimed no public vote was needed because the 12 acres where the homes are squished together (including 12 apartments) would still be in Agricultural use! Can you believe it?? Outrageous!
