Danville council to discuss proposed housing development

Project would add 20 new residential lots on roughly 10 acres in SW Danville

The Danville Town Council is set to debate Tuesday (April 1) whether to approve a proposed development that would bring 20 new residential lots to property off San Ramon Valley Boulevard in southwestern Danville.

Pleasanton-based Ponderosa Homes hopes to build new houses on a small portion of a nearly 110-acre parcel at the end of Midland Way.

The company's proposal calls for 20 single-family homes and a minimum of two second-dwelling units on a low-lying, 10-acre portion of the parcel, known as the Podva property. The remaining 99 acres would be designated as permanent open space, under the proposal.

The town council is set to consider approving the major subdivision request and final development plan, certifying the environmental impact report, signing off on proposed mitigation measures, rezoning the property and allowing the developer to remove 14 town-protected trees.

The Ponderosa Homes project is listed among several open-session items for Tuesday's regular council meeting, scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. at the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.

In other business, the council will present a proclamation declaring next week as National Volunteer Recognition Week.

A PG&E representative will give council members an update on the company's Pipeline Pathways Project.

The council will also receive reports about the town's Development Services Department, the Parks and Leisure Services Commission, the Central Contra Costa Solid Waste Authority, the TRAFFIX governing board and the mayor's recent trip to Washington, D.C.

I don't think it is an April fools joke. The April fools joke is the town council.

Remember what I told you a few days ago about the second paragraph of the mayors promises...Here it comes folks of Danville broken promises and it's only a few days old

Thanks for listening, Julia Pardini from safe ans sane Alamo

And no matter what anyone wants to build we know that Julia will try and stop it from being built as she has her home and now wants to stop others from having their homes---and she does not even live in Danville!! Wow this takes self centered to a new level!

Oh goodie goodie, here we go again.......Watch all the "Bobble Heads" on the Council start nodding their heads up and down when their good campaign finance buddies come to this meeting, making their great claims about how wonderful their project is for our town. Especially the part about REMOVING TREES ALREADY PROTECTED BY THE TOWN. I just can't wait to hear the clowns rationalization on how much our community will benefit by tearing up hundred year old oak trees to build more houses. If you happen to attend you might want to walk up and look under area where the heads are a bobbin' . Bet you see five sets of greedy hands stretched out just waiting to grab the campaign cash.....
Oh yeah, you might also want to bring at least five of those white bags that are placed in airline seat pockets. They come in real handy when the "Bobble Heads" start their sermons.
