Please note readers of this article: this reads like one of the brochures from the Yes on Y campaign.

Tat, Actually less than 1 million was spent on 'yes' advertising on measure Y. The only reason for spending that money was because of the people opposing the development and the accompanying creation of Open Space with trails, etc. It is naive to think that a builder would just remain silent.
And I see nothing wrong with the article stating the benefits of the project such as a large amount of permanent open space, hiking and biking trails, and also addressing some traffic congestion concerns.
While I would prefer NO future growth in the Bay Area the reality is that Sacramento is demanding it. They are the real problem.
