Save Open Space - Danville
Save Open Space - Danville, or SOS-Danville for short, is a citizen's group that has been formed to:
1. Preserve and protect Danville's remaining agricultural, park and recreation, and open space land.
2. Ensure that Danville voters get a say in any decisions that might affect the future use of current agricultural, park and recreation, or open space use land.
We Are Committed to Saving Danville's Open Space
Update from April 23 Hearing
Thank you to the more than 200 folks who showed up to express their opposition to the SummerHill Homes Magee ranch project. Despite pressure from the developer and Town Staff to come to a decision, the Commission decided to ask that more information be developed in a number of areas, including traffic, hydrology, bicycle safety, and others. In addition, during the course of discussion, Commissioner Paul Radich stated that he feels the project is inconsistent with the Agricultural land use designation and requires a change in that designation to a residential one, which will require a Measure S vote!
Important Planning Commission Meeting
The Planning Commission will likely be voting at its Tuesday, May 14th meeting on whether or not to recommend that the Town Council approve the SummerHill Homes project. If it votes to recommend approval, they will also likely determine whether the project will need a Measure S public vote to move forward. Please attend the May 14th meeting, which will take place at the Danville Community Center at 7:30 p.m.
SummerHill Final EIR
The SummerHill FINAL EIR is now available for review on the Town of Danville website.
Preservation Initiative now Filed
We filed the SOS-Danville petition with Danville's City Clerk on April 12th. The final count was more than 4,172 signatures with at least 3,400 valid ones, so we are very confident that we were able to exceed the 2,726 signatures needed for the general election. CONGRATULATIONS AND THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLVED! Within 30 days from today, the Registrar must complete the validation and tell us whether or not we qualify for the next general election (November 2013).
Please reach out to us if you have any questions, or if you are looking to get involved with SOS-Danville and the Preservation Initiative. We look forward to hearing from you.
