Major Issues to Consider When Voting No on Measure L – Deer Hill Homes Development
In 2015, the City of Lafayette denied the referendum signed by 2000+ citizens to vote on the “Homes at Deer Hill” development, resulting in litigation against the City. In February, 2018, the Court determined that the City violated State law and ordered the City to put the referendum to a vote. Although the November general election date was anticipated, the City purposely rushed the process in order to limit voter’s ability to obtain critical information necessary for an informed decision. MEASURE L gives voters, on June 5th, the opportunity to approve or reject City Ordinance No. 641, approving 44 homes, a dog park, ‘tot-lot’, sports field, and 78-spaces lighted parking lot at the intersection of Deer Hill and Pleasant Hill Roads near Highway 24 and Acalanes High School.
The City is not working in your family’s best interest. The Deer Hill project has been seriously mishandled by the City. The Deer Hill project has proven and documented significant increases in traffic congestion and air pollution, presenting a serious health risk to the children and other residents of Lafayette.
