"Lund Ranch II proposes roads on hillsides" FALSE.
"In addition to the access road, another of the roads in the project also is to be constructed on a slope greater than 25%." FALSE
TRUTH/FACT: There is A road (i.e., one road) that was approved for the project that involves a hillside/slope, Sunset Creek Lane. The road actually exists today, and there are homes on it that are part of Sycamore Heights. It's about 150 yards below the ridgeline, and it has nowhere to go but down if it's extended into the Lund Ranch II development.
"Lund Ranch II proposes houses on steep slopes." FALSE
"...at least 7 lots of the proposed 43 are on slopes greater than 25%." FALSE
TRUTH/FACT: The approved project is for 43 homes, ALL of which are to be built in a VALLEY, on FLAT land. NONE of the 43 homes are permitted to be built on any slopes contained within the Lund Ranch II property.
"We want PP to be followed, which prohibits structures including roads and retaining walls." FALSE
TRUTH/FACT: Measure PP does not prohibit roads. In fact, in the impartial analysis of Measure PP in 2008 by the City Attorney, he commented, "Some clarification of terms in the Measure (e.g., â€œstructureâ€, â€œridgelineâ€, how to measure â€œslopeâ€) may be necessary in order that General Plan policies remain internally consistent and to resolve potential conflicts between
other City policies and the Measure. The City Council has never determined/voted that 'a road is a structure.'
"Allowing the City to interpret Measure PP on a case-by-case basis is not how the law is supposed to work, and sets a very dangerous precedent for other hillside development in the future." FALSE
TRUTH/FACT: The City Attorney stated publicly during a City Council meeting that interpreting Measure PP on a case-by-case basis is legal, and making a decision regarding Lund Ranch II and Measure PP does NOT set a precedent/make it a binding decision for other hillside development in the future.
At the very least, it would behoove the leaders of SavePleasantonHillsides to correct these misstatements of fact.
