FACTS: The proposed complex is at the corner of Pleasant Hill road and Deer Hill Road, adjacent to Highway 24 and diagonal from Acalanes High School. At this congested intersection this is what they want to build:
- 14 apartment buildings consisting of 315 apartments
- Leasing office and clubhouse
- 550 parking spaces
- Removal of 92 trees (60+ HERITAGE TREES ALREADY REMOVED WITH CITY APPROVAL!)
- 500,000 cubic yards of earth movement
- A new state law limits the project review to a maximum of 5 public meetings over a max of 90 days.
Traffic Safety: 3000 more daily car trips
Construction: 80,000 dump truck trips over months of construction causing even more traffic backup
Firestorms: Site is at the epicenter of the City designated Very High Fire Hazard Severity Zone
Law: Legality of the project between the City and the developer complex and unresolved
Dangerous Precedent: Which would potentially preclude lawsuits or referendums against future massive developments anywhere in the city
Health: Air quality impact on sensitive receptors, seniors and children
Overcrowding: Significant impact on enrollment in Lafayette schools
