Danville SUED by injured cyclists for dangerous Diablo Rd conditions

Excerpt: The Town of Danville created a dangerous condition of public property by failing to place any warning signs, including but not limited to a "No Shoulder" sign as specified by sign W8-23 of the California Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices, and/or any other warning that the subject roadway had no shoulder and/or posed danger to bicyclists, and by failing to sufficiently notify the public of the existence of the path.

Danville's High-Risk Fire Zone

Excerpt: According to analysis by the Los Angeles Times, trouble zones in the Bay Area include the foothills of Mount Diablo in Contra Costa County. Mount Diablo State Park near Danville is indeed the sort of spot that raises concerns, with rolling hills filled with dried vegetation and trees and homes wedged in the middle. The fire risk is compounded by the fact that Diablo Rd is not sufficient to evacuate thousands of residents in a wildfire emergency.

How Bay Area park district meddled in November election

Excerpt: Another government entity has meddled in our elections, this time right here in the Bay Area in the recently completed November election. The meddler was one of our own local agencies – the East Bay Regional Park District. The law requires reporting of campaign expenditures when they reach $1,000. And it generally prohibits use of public funds for political campaign purposes. The park district violated both.

The Art of Newspeak - The Orwellian sham

Excerpt: Magee Ranch, which Davidon Homes hopes to ravage, is currently open space not covered by development. The concept of Davidon is to bulldoze this currently uncovered space and build 69 closely clustered houses in part of the formerly open area. The Danville Town Council "slithered" around existing zoning laws in order to greenlight the project.

Building on vacant land isn’t preserving open space

Excerpt: Calling themselves Yes on Open Space, Davidon Homes wants to cluster 69 homes on 29 acres of undeveloped rolling hills. Since when does building homes on vacant land constitute the preservation of open space? This project does nothing to guarantee protections to bicyclists on already crowded roads, destroys green space and creates additional risks to residents who may need to evacuate during wildfires by jamming more development into an area served by narrow roads.
